On 'Winning through losing'

"People don’t like to lose. People are fond of saying that they hate losing. They’re winners. They’re people you’d want on your team. However, I’m calling on everyone to give losing a second look. Scripture says that you’ve got to lose in order to win. In other words, if you can’t lose, you’re not going to win. The Bible magnifies losing."

Amen brother! I've made losing an art form. Reminds me of the old hymn The Workman of God by Faber. It has a verse that says:

Then learn to scorn the praise of men,
And learn to lose with God;
For Jesus won the world through shame,
And beckons thee His road.

I am a chronic loser :). Jokes apart, I strongly feel I can appreciate and value things more than those who have always won.

Glad to hear it (that you can appreciate & value things more). Maybe there's still hope for some of the rest of us, too.
