Title: About competition
Post by: arunangelo on January 30, 2006, 11:35:50 PM
Jesus tells us that to be first, we should be last and the servant of all(Mark 9:35).
   Paul tells us “Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem the other better than himself.  Look not every man to his own things, but every man also to the things of others” (Phil 2:3-4). He tells us to be devoted to one another in brotherly love and honor others above our selves (Gal. 6:4).  He also tells us to keep away from strife (Phi.2: 3; Rom. 13:13; 1Cor. 3:3; Gal 5:20, 21); which is opposing, battling or competing with others.

Kinda throws out the "winning" attitudes that are so prevalent - even among *church* softball teams.  :-\

No, it's MY turn!
Forget "them", what a bout ME??!!
Notice ME!
See ME!
