Winning And Losing

June 1, 2012

The Masters Tournament is one of the most prestigious in professional golf. In 2009, Kenny Perry placed second after leading during the final round. Writing in The New York Times, Bill Pennington described Perry as “disappointed but not despondent” after the loss. “I’ll look back on it occasionally and wonder what I might have done differently, but I won’t dwell on it,” Perry said. “If this is the worst thing that happens in my life, I’ve got it pretty good. I won’t let it dog me. There are so many other things in life that matter more . . . . I’ll go home tonight with my family and we’ll have fun.”

The ability to look beyond our disappointments is essential for followers of Christ. Our focus determines how we face the victories and defeats in life. “If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God. Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth” (Col. 3:1-2). This way of thinking looks to Christ, rather than our achievements, for significance and validation. We seek Him, not success.

When we strive for excellence and give our best effort, losing hurts, but it doesn’t have to harm us. The key is where we set our minds and hearts.

Lord, thank You that You are the one who measures
how we’ve done in life and determines
whether we’ve been successful. Help us to keep that
focus even in disappointments.
When Christ is the center of your focus, everything else comes into proper perspective.

Read: Colossians 3:1-12

Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth. —Colossians 3:2
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 22-24

I am asking you all for a special prayer tonight.
Larry has lost his beloved wife Lisa to cancer.
They are the folks who own
The Liberty Limousine pictured above.
These wonderful folks have done so much for the Troops,
I hardly know where to begin.
The picked up homecoming Troops, and would drive them
anywhere they wanted to go.
They have raised thousands of dollars for Veterans.
She was just one of the best.
He asked her to hold on
for their 56th Anniversay, and she did.
It was yesterday.
Please keep them in your prayers tonight.
Thank you.
