“Mom, that’s not how I want to play. I don’t like that rule.”
That’s what Tate, my youngest son who was five at the time, said when I was trying to play a board game with him.
In little kid logic, Tate decided he would just ignore the rules he didn’t like. This may seem innocent enough for a kid, but not so much for an adult. I want to win at this thing called the Christian life, but if I’m completely honest, occasionally I run across one of God’s laws that just makes winning a bit harder for me.
Here’s the lesson Tate is learning, and that I know but don’t always practice. It’s no fun winning if you break the rules, and we have far more at stake than just winning a game. We are here to show the world the glory of our incomparable God! Now that’s #winning!
