Blue Horizontal Line


When I watch any contest,
I am embarrassed for the ones who lose
And are shown up as losers,
But I am more embarrassed for the winner,
Who has shown up others.
Why couldn't everyone have worked together?
As a group doing the task,
So that nobody won and nobody lost?
That way the goal could have been accomplished,
And everyone would have done an honorable part.
It seems a more spiritually mature way.

After all a good man does not rub in his superiority
Before inferiors. He tries to serve his inferiors as Jesus did.
