Philippians 3:13-14 Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
The Apostle Paul shows us the attitude we should strive for in goal setting. Paul knew that after accepting Christ, he was reborn, stepping into a world without end. Yet he shows us that its not yet time to sit back and coast. The race is not over, it has just begun. Paul knew that there was much work to be done in God’s kingdom and, like a race, pressed on.
