Ecclesiastes 9:11 (a) The wise man is telling us that human effort will not accomplish GOD's purposes. The power of GOD is necessary to accomplish the work of GOD.
1 Corinthians 9:24 (a) This life is like the competition between athletes, each one is endeavoring to get ahead of the other. Each one hopes to get the prize of wealth, honor, fame or power.
Hebrews 12:1 (a) The Lord is exhorting us to live wisely, profitably and well. It is His desire that we should seek in every way to gain the prize of the high calling of GOD in CHRIST JESUS, the crown, the "well done," and the approval of the Judge.
