The Attitude of Winners
"Make your own attitude that of Jesus Christ."
Athletes and coaches often think that winning is everything, but truthfully, it is not. A person's attitude--win or lose--helps determine true winners and losers.
The Bible says that in order to please God, we need to love one another and work together with one purpose. It's says that we should not be selfish or to try to impress others, but instead be humble and look out for our teams. God wants us to have the same attitude that Jesus Christ had.
The Bible tells us, in Philippians, to think on good things, not bad. So, next time, instead of throwing a tantrum on the field, think to yourself, "I did my best, and next time, I will do better." Having a Christ-like attitude will bring victory to your life even when you lose a game.
"Father, we pray in Jesus' name that You would help us to have good attitudes whether we win or lose. We give You all the glory for our athletic abilities."
