No doubt it was a huge success but what will become of the medals won and the winners. First there is the intrinsic value for the winners because the medal gave them a temporary happiness and satisfaction and the nation is proud to be ranked third best in the world.
The extrinsic values give the winners and the nation some economic and financial gains but none of these is guaranteed.
In the world's Olympics, many run but only one wins the prize. why not run with Jesus the race of life where all run and win.
But we have use the same level of the committment, discioline and dedication of the athletes to win this race and it is very certain and guaranteed by the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.
