The elusive thrill of victory. The taste of it.
We desire victory. We long for it. We train for it. We play to win.
Yet, seldom do we taste victory. Even if we are good. We aren’t always victorious.
But, think about it for a minute. Who ever said that we would be victorious? Two football teams play for four quarters—yet only one team wins. Two baseball teams play for nine innings—only one will walk away a victor.
So, why—this side of heaven—do we think we deserve victory? Seriously. Why?
Let’s get over it already.
