Another encouraging video about faith and work from Howard Butt Jr. of Competition can drive us toward success, but sometimes winning means more than beating.


Two stock car drivers—Chris Ater and Dillion Smith—were archrivals. Their competition for the season-point-total lead climaxed in a car-bumping incident. It cost Ater the victory. Smith, his chief competitor, survived the bump and won the race. The next time Ater and Smith met on the track, it was Smith’s turn to spin out and severely damage his car. He doubted his crew could repair the car in time for the next race. But the first person in the pits to offer help? It was Smith’s rival, Chris Ater. This is Howard Butt, Jr., of Laity Lodge. A true champion is driven more by winning than by beating. He honors his competition as well as his own goal—in the high calling of our daily work. It is not good to eat too much honey, nor is it honorable to seek one’s own honor. (Prov. 25:27)
