A positive minute: W is for winner

Philippians 4:13 I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

For those of us who enjoy watching sports, we want OUR team to be the winner. When I lived in Dallas, we expected the Cowboys to win the game and, most of the time, they did. I remember the days of Coach Landry, who was a Christian; he didn’t mind sharing his faith with others. Coach Landry was a positive for the team, and it showed through many of the players.

To be a winner means we work and struggle, getting through the situations life throws our way. Our choice is to either get caught up in the drama of life or run the race of life with confidence, overcoming the obstacles before us.

To get caught up in the drama of life can be most exhausting. Have you met people who are forever in the middle of something that distracts them from a positive life? We have plenty of that in our community, just as every community has it. Why? Because we are human. Some people struggle with taking care of their own affairs, because they are continually caught up in the drama of another person’s life.

To be a winner means we have set our pace and are keeping our sight on the end result: winning. Raising a family calls us to run the race with a vision for our children and helping cultivate within them, not the drama of life, but the reality of winning. Doing well in school, learning obedience, good hygiene, proper attitude toward others and respect for parents – these are all things we must strive to instill in our children. I know, that’s quite a list, isn’t it? None the less, these things are necessary for the start of a healthy citizen.
