Kind of stinks for the loser. Kind of stinks for the winner too, just not now.
This weekend was one sporting event after another. And it was fun. Boys and young men who faithfully do their push ups everyday competing against one another, for the ball, for a pin, for the end zone. And 99% of the time the athletes were fair and decent. Then comes the boys and moms and dads and coaches who are not fair, do not play fair. Use words like strategy to manipulate the sport or don't use any words and just cheat. And win! The peers gather in a circle shake their heads in disgust and call the kid a dirty player...the dad interjects with a laugh and says to the boys, "yea, but he wins...you losers don't." Doesn't seem fair or right because it isn't. Guess sports is sometimes a microcosm of life. And like all of life whatever the apparent outcome, we still can't cheat time or God. We have to shake it off and continue to preach do the right thing, and keep the faith.
