TOBI Says, what are you pre­par­ing for?

Calhoun Times - - FRONT PAGE -

to be ready for mid­dle school. Then it takes prepa­ra­tion for high school. In high school, young peo­ple are pre­par­ing for col­lege, or tech­ni­cal school, or a trade or some other area of in­ter­est.

If you want to be a pro­fes­sional ath­lete, you study and prac­tice. Skip­ping prac­tice only makes it harder to reach that goal. This is true in fields like medicine, engi­neer­ing or any other area of ad­vanced study. You need to study, and work hard.

In­ter­est in an area is a start. At­ti­tude should fol­low the in­ter­est. En­thu­si­asm can then push you to your goal. Those pro­fes­sional goals are good. They can give you hap­pi­ness in life. But there is a more im­por­tant area.

Are you pre­pared for your ul­ti­mate goal? The goal for each per­son should be heaven. Have you pre­pared to reach that goal? The Bi­ble has your an­swer for that. Je­sus said, I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Je­sus died on the cross to pay for your sins. He is the only one that can for­give your sin.

Things like study­ing the Bi­ble, go­ing to church, shar­ing your faith with oth­ers are all things that you can do to help oth­ers to pre­pare to reach that goal also.

Be­ing a Chris­tian uses in­ter­est, at­ti­tude, and en­thu­si­asm to de­velop that joy in your life. So do not skip prac­tice. Then you will be pre­pared for what is to come in your life.
