The greater the obstacle, the more glory in overcoming it. (Molière, 17th century playwright and actor)
It’s exciting to win at any contest. But when an “underdog” team defeats a highly favored opponent, it is even more exhilarating. The fans of the winning team will likely flood the court, and the players will be praised and exalted beyond reason. Such prospect of winning is a great motivation for tackling even the most difficult problems.
For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith (1 John 5:4).
