It’s just not in our nature to accept losing. We hate to lose. But there are worse things that can happen. One of the pastors in the video below has a uniquely refreshing perspective on what really matters—and on being blessed for obedience.
My son, do not forget my teaching, but keep my commands in your heart, for they will prolong your life many years and bring you prosperity. Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.
Proverbs 3:1-6 (NIV)
