What’s worth more than gold?: A Christian perspective

We are all watching with interest and enthusiasm as our teams compete in London. The IRC is showing the Olympic Games via Foxtel every day before school and at lunch.

The link below is to an article written by Jim Dayhew – who was a teacher at Broughton five years ago.It is on the site Fervr that holds daily articles, reviews and videos for Christian teens. In this article Jim discusses the motivation to win at all costs and the race we all need to consider above all else.

As we celebrate the games and the striving for gold medals, let’s remember that while the Olympic games are a great human pursuit, there is something worth more than gold. Faith through Jesus is what is most important. The Apostle Paul reminds us of this when he writes:

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. (1 Corinthians 9:25)
