Bible: 2 Timothy 2:3-6

2:3 Take your share of suffering 1  as a good soldier of Christ Jesus. 2:4 No one in military service gets entangled in matters of everyday life; otherwise he will not please 2  the one who recruited him. 2:5 Also, if anyone competes as an athlete, he will not be crowned as the winner 3  unless he competes according to the rules. 4  2:6 The farmer who works hard ought to have the first share of the crops.
