2 Timothy 2:5-6New International Version (NIV)
5 Similarly, anyone who competes as an athlete does not receive the victor’s crown except by competing according to the rules. 6 The hardworking farmer should be the first to receive a share of the crops.
Dear Father, Your Word is life. There had been times in my life before I was saved by your grace, that I thought your boundaries were ruining my fun. But I know now that your Word is life, and it guards me. It keeps me safe. Help me to read and learn your Word daily so that I may enjoy the fruit of a life lived well and within your guidance. Thank you. In Jesus’ Name I Pray, Amen.
