Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.
Time. We all have the same amount of it. Most of us wish we had more of it. Many of us don't want to "waste" time on things that we don't see as worthwhile. But have you ever wondered what God sees as worthy of your time?

First of all, we all struggle. This person's struggle is outward, for everyone to see. Your struggle just may be in secret. Being in shape does not make you a better person. Instead, be grateful. Secondly, who are you to judge? The Bible specifically advises us not to judge. God is the only judge.
The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit." -Proverbs 18:20-21NIV
