We were playing Mission Impossible at youth group. A little back ground on the game: You turn off all the lights and whoever is it stays in the front of the room "guarding whistles" which is extremely hard when it's dark with your back turned. At sporadic times whoever is it can turn around and turn on their flash light and call out names of who they see. Meanwhile the rest of the group is crawling over couches and under tables trying to be the first to the whistle to blow it and win the round. While trying to dodge the flashlight (if you get caught you have to start over).
So hopefully that makes sense...
Anyway as I lay in bed tossing and turning trying to sleep (God revels cool things at odd times) God showed me that, that game represents the race of life. The people who kept winning were the ones who were less concerned about getting caught and more concerned about getting the prize. Just like Christians. There are some who are to concerned about getting caught being a Christian and they miss the big picture... Others just run the race and know that ever when they get caught they can always get back up and run again and still get the prize of heaven...

Hebrews 12:1 ... Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us.
