I used to think I was competitive, but circumstances in my life made me do some re-evaluation and I realized that I had wrongly confused my driven nature for competitiveness. I love to win. I love to earn As in school, but at the end of the day, my strongest competitor is me. I don’t like to compete with others, and this truth made me feel “less than.” You know some competitive people. You may be one of them! And here’s some good news, God actually encourages competition. But probably not the competition that you’re used to. God loves competition that brings Him glory. He loves competition that removes us from our comfort zone and forces us to be better...for His glory. He loves competition that brings us joy...for His glory. He loves competition that is edifying and peaceful and kind.
