Should a Christian be Competitive?

Full Product Description

What does it mean to be competitive? What is the origin of competitiveness? Is being competitive part of God's plan for us? How did bible characters successfully cope with or enact competitiveness? Can we find purpose or lasting blessings through competitiveness? Should a Christian be competitive? Humanity in general, is on a treadmill of competitiveness. We are ensconced in the belief that success is tantamount to being competitive and vice-versa; we are encouraged to constantly compare ourselves to others and aim to be ahead of our neighbour in whatever capacity we fancy. However, there are no universal social guidelines for what constitutes competitiveness. The boundary of what is acceptable under the guise of competitiveness depends on each individual's conscience and moral proclivity. This book examines the bible starting with the story of creation in Genesis to the lives of the forbears of our faith (i.e. Isaac, Jacob and Esau, Joseph, Hannah, David, Esther, Daniel) and finally the early Christians, to uncover how they faced the challenges of competitiveness. It reveals several vital issues such as: Inadvertent labelling of behavioural or emotional disorders as competitiveness Elements of Christian values that cannot be compromised in a competitive scenario Strategies for coping with competitive situations This book provides insightful, bible-centred counsel to people who are inherently competitive, or those facing difficulties with relationships within their family, church or workplace as a result of overt competitiveness. It offers clarity, strength and wisdom necessary for such individuals to move on, and to fulfil God's destiny and purpose for their lives.
