Competition or cooperation? You have a choice!

Live audio chat with Phil Davis, C.S.B.

In this chat Phil points to the fact that “there are no losers in God’s kingdom, only winners.” He shows the importance of “thinking less about our own posture at home and work, and more about loving God and those around us” because this is what brings the desired progress, prosperity, health, and wholeness to our lives. Phil talks about how futile comparing yourself to others is. Instead, our job is to see that our place in God’s kingdom is unique, between God and you, because no one else will fill the niche that God has for you.

Phil answers questions such as: How do you deal with jealousy? How does greed play into competition and what can you do about it? Is competition both good and bad? There seems to be a lot of competition in the workforce, with older individuals needing to work longer and young people needing to find jobs to get started in life; how can you pray about this? How can we make sure our desire to improve or excel stays healthy and doesn't become just human will? And, how can we get past the idea that winning in sports competitions is the only thing that matters? Phil answers these questions and more with the promise “God is an equal opportunity benefactor!” His goodness is there for everyone, at all times.
