Basketball goals and life goals.
The few words from him that encouraged me:
Happiness should not be dependent on achievements. Happiness should not fluctuate in how we play in games/perform in exams.
He says, yeah it looks like he is living the perfect life. But then adds on to say that stuff brings him only temporary happiness but not eternal joy.
How are you living your life? What do you think about most everyday? How do you play the game of life for the heavenly prize?
John Piper – God created us for one single passion; to display His supreme excellence in all areas of life.
Submit your will and desires and let God take care of the rest.
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
1 Corinthians 9:24-25The Need for Self-Discipline 24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters.
