But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. ~ 2 Corinthians 4:7
May the victor of the physical battle go to the man who prepares himself to be stronger, faster, and more equipped to endure with stamina. While on top for a little while, his vessel is only strengthed from the outside... he has a shelf life.
May the victor of the spiritual battle go to the man who empties himself of anger, venom, selfishness, pride, and doubt. Becoming empty and fragile, God fills him with peace, wisdom, determination, focus, nobility, and honor. The man is strengthed from the inside...he endures.
Empty the toxins. Fill your clay-jar-life with God's pure truth so you can win the day - and give God the credit.
GO DEEPER: 2 Corinthians 12:9-10
