My wife’s a nurse and doesn’t think they’re healthy.
But the other day, she surprised me and tossed a box of the unfrosted kind into the cart. It felt like Christmas.
Later, as I opened the box, a message caught my eye. On the inside of the box was printed “Sorry. You are not a winner.”
This made me sad. I didn’t even know I was competing!
I hadn’t thought I was a loser until someone else told me so.
That’s kinda how it goes in the world, isn’t it?
The world tells me I’m a hypocrite.
That I can’t think for myself.
That I’ll never succeed.
So it’s good to be reminded that I’m not playing their game.
I’m playing God’s.
I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.
