Today's Casual Friday comes from an ESPN article that was referred to me by a friend, called "Compassion and Competition".
The Coles Notes version is this: A softball team that hadn't lost a game in 2 1/2 years -- a team that was going to win in a landslide -- purposely offered to declare defeat so that they could spend 2 hours helping a younger team get better by taking the time to mentor them instead.
I can't help but think of churches when I read this article. Instead of competing with other churches in our towns and cities, wouldn't it be better to take some time to help out our neighboring churches?
"Love your neighbor as yourself." I believe that goes for churches as well.
