Today´s reading:
OT: Nehemiah 9:22-38, Nehemiah 10
NT: I Corinthians 9:19-27, I Corinthians 10:1-13
Ps: Psalm 34:1-10
Pr: Proverbs 21:13

Today´s notable verse:

19 Though I am free and belong to no man, I make myself a slave to everyone, to win as many as possible. 20 To the Jews I became like a Jew, to win the Jews. To those under the law I became like one under the law (though I myself am not under the law), so as to win those under the law. 21 To those not having the law I became like one not having the law (though I am not free from God's law but am under Christ's law), so as to win those not having the law. 22 To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.

I Corinthians 9:19-22 (NIV)

And again:

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.

I Corinthians 9:24 (NIV)

And yet again:

12 So, if you think you are standing firm, be careful that you don't fall! 13 No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it.

I Corinthians 10:12-13 (NIV)

Some of Paul's best writings are in this passage. Nothing really to add; his words are sufficient.
