What does the Bible say about

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it.
For God shows no partiality.

For fear has to do with punishment, and whoever fears has not been perfected in love. We love because he first loved us. If anyone says, “I love God,” and hates his brother, he is a liar; for he who does not love his brother whom he has seen cannot love God whom he has not seen. ...
