[VIDEO] Honor Our Competition

You’ve heard the old saying, “It’s not whether you win or lose, it’s how you play the game.” Well, I don’t know how much I (Dan King) agree with that statement, because winning is important–and fun! But it’s not everything.

Competition is a good thing. It pushes us to do better and achieve more.

However, that doesn’t mean that we should hate our competition. That’s not what God called us to do. Rather, we should respect and honor our competition.

Watch and listen as Howard Butt Jr. shares about how competition can drive us toward success, but sometimes winning means more than beating. 


Sports for the Glory of God

If God has created humanity with bodies that are “fearfully and wonderfully made,” we need to develop a Christian way of living that incorporates play and recreation, leisure and competition, sports and athletics. Faith in the Creator and Redeemer should lead us to identify the way sports and athletics are meant to be, discern when something is wrong with sports in our broken and sinful culture, and imagine ways to be instruments of redemption in this sphere. In this series, Sports for the Glory of God, we engage with stories of people who are working through these issues on a daily basis.
