The Mirror Ball Trophy, Now New and Shinier!

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. 1 Corinthians 9:24 

The tenth season of ABC's Dancing With The Stars began on March 16th. Now I do not recognize this as clean family entertainment as some of the ladies costumes are a bit provocative and some couples dance moves look like need to get a room at a motel. But I confess I watch it some seasons if an interesting person is on who is decent. Last season Duck Dynasty teen co star Sadie Robertson was a refreshing change to the a cast member who might swear or almost not wear clothes. 

All the dancer couples are dancing for the ultimate prize, The famed Mirror Ball trophy, which the announcer made a point of saying this season was bigger and better than all the other seasons. Trophies, prizes, and recognition are nice. They are especially good motivators for performance. To go through life seeking after earthly rewards is fine but it should not be all encompassing. The real and greatest reward is our heavenly crown we will wear in heaven after Jesus takes us home to be with Him for eternity. 

Don't focus on just winning things here on Earth but seek Christ first and good things will come to you. 

PRAYER: Winning and recognition on Earth is fun but I look forward to winning the ultimate prize and that is being in heaven for eternity. If I get earthly rewards help me remember to give you the glory. In Jesus' name. Amen.
