How to be #1

Which comes first:  talent, passion to win, or team spirit?

In pre-season training camps across this land athletes are pitting mind and muscle against each other, vying for a shot at living their dreams.

How about you?  What are you in training for?  Who are you competing against?  For what or whom are you making the effort?

You won’t hear this in any halftime pep talk:  “So you want first place?  Then take the last place.  Be the servant of all.”

Who in heaven’s name said that?  Clue:  He’s the One who left first place to take your place so that you could be on His team.
