We share an inherent desire to Win!
This gives confidence with what we accomplish, which is important for us to have. In fact, it’s important that we develop skills while stretching to be good at something. When we do this we give ourselves a chance to win!
Where we get tripped up is in the definition of winning and how we get there.
Some make everything about money, others make it about status and what they get. All of which is fickle and temporal. In this process many don’t care how they get in the winner’s circle while hurting others; moreover, themselves.
However Christ has a way for us to do things with honor and where we do things in order. This is where we have longevity!
“Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet on your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man.”Proverbs 3:3-4
Notice, we see two things that lead us into the Winner’s Circle with God and people.
The first is love. This may seem elementary yet we are challenged daily to fulfill this. Our lives are to be an open heart to God and to people which leads to fulfillment. A life of joy with peace that empowers us to break through ourselves.
We cheat ourselves when we cast off love as an easy task that we have already heard about. We enlarge ourselves when we embrace loving God and people with arms wide open!
When we love we will be in the Winner’s Circle with God and with people.
The second is faithfulness. This speaks volumes to a culture where it’s about what we want and whatever is best for us no matter who is hurt. Being faithful to God, to family, to marriage and more is on trial as many walk away daily from these blessings. This is unfortunate as opportunities are lost within the actions of being unfaithful.
However, being faithful connects to God and to those in our lives. It speaks to being able to handle the blessings that await us and giving the blessings to others! It’s beyond us, it’s bigger than us and when we live like that, we are blessed!
When we are faithful we will be in the Winner’s Circle with God and with people.
We were made to Win! Do it God’s way and watch His Goodness overwhelm you!!
Something great is happening!
