When a hyper-competitive believer,

is transformed/overhauled by Jesus, what does that look like?  He begins to enjoy others, rather than compete with them.  His envy/competitiveness/proving-addiction begins to dissipate.  He actually begins to enjoy the competition, in sports, politics, work, church, neighborhood, family, other nations, other religions, other values,  whatever.  Enjoys their victories more and more.  Enjoys their failures/mistakes, less and less.  He loves the competition, loves losers, jerks, stupids, everyone.  But the hardest for him to enjoy, is himself, just as he is.  We hyper-competitive believers are filled with suppressed self-contempt, and need Jesus to begin to heal the wound on our souls that fuels our worthiness-proving addiction, and keeps us from loving unconditionally, like Jesus loved.   Ahhh.

–DumbSheepDave, baby steppin in a less-competitive direction, sometimes, when his Shepherd’s Spirit freshly convicts him of the sin of independence/pride, wondering if the pre-believers around him are noticing any difference in 2014
