Remember the game of checkers? Remember how you and your friends would play this game for hours? What was it about this game that kept our attention? I believe it was the competitiveness that kept us playing for hours. If we lost one round we would say I want a rematch, and of course our opponent did not mind they loved it as much as you did.
But at the end of the game no matter how many times you lost or won you walked away still being friends, looking forward to tomorrow to play again. Is life-like a game of checkers and chess? Always moving across the board, strategizing what your next step would be? Will it be a good move or will it be a lost for you?
How do you view the decisions in your life? James ask the question do you see yourself as an over-comer? Or do you see yourself as defeated? How you see yourself is how you will handle decisions in your life.
