Do you watch the Amazing Race? My husband loves that show, and has recently been catching up on years of missed episodes. I don’t love it and here’s why: the bickering. Listen, if I want to hear people arguing, I’m perfectly capable of picking a fight myself. It stresses me out.
In one recent episode he was watching, I noticed that when groups found a clue, they would try to stealthily read and record information without other groups knowing. And that’s good strategy when you’re competing. If they were all on one team, when they found the clue they’d call out, “Found it!” so everyone could run over and see the information.
And that’s exactly what I’ve been noticing that both King David, and the Apostle Paul did in Scripture…and what we, as believers, are supposed to be doing.
