We live in a culture of competition. It’s a fact. It’s not pretty.
And, worse, we seem to thrive on it.
Jesus demands something different of us. If we want to be more than happy, we have to live a life of cooperation and show others to live the same way. Jesus gave us His Spirit to empower us to live this way in His new agreement with God.
“You’re more than happy (blessed) when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.” ~~Jesus (Matthew 5:9 The Message)
