There cannot be a goal without a goalpost. In football or soccer, a goalpost marks the target to be reached. It tells where you’re going, the progress you’re making, and when you make your aim. The goalpost also represents boundaries—those things which are never intended to move. In life, as in sports, success or failure is not only determined by a clear knowledge of your goal (God’s purpose for your life), but also of the goalpost (God’s guide for your life). You cannot score a goal when there’s no goalpost, and it’s futile trying to shift the goalpost. Life’s Goalpost is unchangeable, for the Ten Commandments are not Ten Suggestions (Exodus 20:1-15; Matthew 5:17–19). Want a goal? Aim for the Goalpost.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
