The Prize has nothing to do with he who wrote it on paper. It is all about the prize itself and the value of it in relation to the winner of the prize.
There is a tremendous battle over this prize. Needless to say, that is why it is called the prize.
When the prize is won, there are two winners, yet in the fine-print detail, there are four, all of whom become one.
We live in a day where we all want something for nothing.
There was a ship out in the sea one day, and a storm came up and was about to destroy the ship and all on board. Suddenly they looked up at the waves and they saw a man come walking on the water.
Now if you were in that boat all by yourself, you were about to go under, and you looked up and saw this man coming to you, walking on the water with his hand reaching out to rescue you, would you say no thank you? Or would you grasp his hand and be rescued? Now that would be a prize (and that is the prize).
Be sure to know this: The prize could be you or yours. And if you receive the prize, one day you will be walking on water yourself.About the Author
A crossroad in Kentucky known as the community of Cleopatra has been the home for fifty years of the author of The Prize, who has a tremendous burden for young people. Having taught Sunday school and training union as many years and more, it has become clear to him that the main focus of life has fallen to the wayside in our busy todayism lifestyle.
People, especially the young, are not being told the truth of what life is all about. The tremendous worthiness and value that is placed in each one individually has nothing to with wealth and fame, but all to do with creation and the creator.
