Inspired by the latest movie I watched,” When the Game Stands Tall”, we really need more people to recognize this world is more than self. It is about being a part of a group, team, community, or brotherhood. These players learned the most important thing is not winning games but being accountable to a larger group for a greater cause. Since there are many people non-athletic, we must build a group of like-minded individuals who have a purpose and plan for making their area of the world a better, more beautiful place.
Once these players faced defeat after 12 straight years of winning, they had to readjust their thinking. Winning is much more than scoring more points than the opponent, it is about giving your best effort in every situation and being accountable for your actions. The fame gets the best of many people, players, entertainers and they usually face defeat as a result. The Bible tells us that is what will happen. Matthew 23:12 “For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted”. Winning is not the goal! Being a respectable, dependable person who is successful in all areas of life is the goal.
Be a part of ‘The Hood” whether it’s a brotherhood or sisterhood. Be a part of something greater in order to make a difference in your life and of those around you.
