“Therefore I run in such a way, as not without aim; I box in such a way, as not beating the air” (1 Corinthians 9:26).
Aiming for nothing assures that nothing will be achieved. Aim has to do with the focus of one’s life. This focus so defines one’s life that any superfluous distraction is set aside and, instead, all energy and effort is directed to the attainment of our true affection. For the follower of Christ, this means that our aim is to glorify Him in all things to which we put our hand.
