This subject has been stirred up from the conduct and actions of a notable superstar athlete few years ago. The reactions of this athlete had a lot of people talking and had left a sour taste in the mouths of many crying bad sportsmanship.
It was brought about by the loss and elimination of this athlete’s team. Hasn’t he lost before? Yes. So what makes this loss more disturbing than the others? What actually happened was Lebron James left the basketball court after his team’s loss without greeting the winning team or speaking to anyone, hence today’s subject.
How do you react in your time of loss? Are you able to maintain a good and positive attitude towards others? The losses in your life are not to make you bitter but better. Every successful person has experienced loss at some time or the other. Do you have what it takes to congratulate someone else on their success or victory, especially when it happened against you?
This is where the greater victories take place, when you conduct yourself in an appropriate manner after a loss.
Success is the ability to go from one failure to another with no loss of enthusiasm.
Sir Winston Churchill
Life will not always go your way. Always hope for the best but be prepared for the worst. Nobody likes to lose, its better to lose a game or things than lose a good name. The time and effort you have put into building your character and name is too much to just let slip away by some bad action or attitude.
So, what’s top priority for you? Is it about winning games to make you look good or winning in life that makes God look good. You should never aim for your name to be greater than His. When you take your life and make it count for Him you will be rewarded. “If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it“. Matthew 10:39 (NLT)
God lost his Son to gain to gain the whole world. What is your lost going to bring you?
Take care until………and God Bless ya
Are you ready to face eternity? If you have not accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour of your life and desire to make that commitment now please repeat the following prayer:
Lord Jesus be merciful to me a sinner. I realize that I have sinned against you and come short of your glory. I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord and I believe in my heart that God has raised him from the dead. I pray for your forgiveness and ask that you save me now and accept me into your kingdom. Give me eternal life today.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
