Playing to Win

The first sports coach that I remember was a passionate, gruff-voiced, rail-thin, two-maybe-three-pack-a-day smoker named Gary.  He coached us soccer and he was the best.

I often recall advice that he hollered at us one halftime.  

“You guys are playing NOT TO LOSE.  I want you to PLAY TO WIN!”

How often do we play to win?  In our work?  Our relationships?  Our life in the church?

And how often do we play not to lose?
