Bible: I Cor. 9:24-27; 10:23, 31, 32
9:24 Do you not know that all the runners in a stadium compete, but only one receives the prize? So run to win. 9:25 Each competitor must exercise self-control in everything. They do it to receive a perishable crown, but we an imperishable one.
9:26 So I do not run uncertainly or box like one who hits only air. 9:27 Instead I subdue my body and make it my slave, so that after preaching to others I myself will not be disqualified.
10:32 These are the families of the sons of Noah, according to their genealogies, by their nations, and from these the nations spread 2 over the earth after the flood.
