Vince Lombardi said “We didn’t lose the game, we just ran out of time.”
Jesus said, “Love one another as I have loved you.”
Parenting, and teaching always were challenging. They are more challenging now than ever before.
Sometimes we feel beat down, discourgaed, overwhelmed.
We need to stay in the game, improve our game, and not hold out for our victory, but hold onto God’s victory.
It is not about being tenacious until we win — exactly. Because if I said that, you might be determined to win at all costs. Then you would lose. Because it is not a fight. Students, adminstrators, or you child’s teacher wanting to fight you is temptation to get off your love walk. We win in Jesus’ victory. It is our faith that overcomes the world. And faith worketh by love.
This is the correct meaning behind “conquer under the sign of the cross.” When we pour out divine love, we are winsome. It is in serving, that we reign.
Hold on to Jesus. Hold on to love. Stand by faith. Then you will never lose.
