Life is a Game

I hear people say “Life is a game” and you have to learn how to play if you want to win. Then why get mad at the rules for the game of life. The only person who can set the rules of the game is the one who created it…GOD! You just can’t make your own rules to a game you had no hand in developing. Let’s talk about the game of life and not the one from Hasbro, life has a particular set of rules that will allow you to win the game. First you have to read the game book (Bible) the life rules: Hear, Believe, Repent, and Confess…You can’t even start playing the game of life until you’re baptized. (Mark 16:16) Now you’re on the board it may feel strange at first because you have been playing the game of life without the official game book for so long.

Now that you possess the game book use it to your advantage to start making the right moves in the game of life to win. Lets list those righteous moves: Walk by the spirit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control these are all game winning strategies. (Galatians 5:22-23) You as the player have the controller in the palm of your hand. So don’t throw your controller out the window when you are frustrated with life because these actions are evident immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, strife, and outburst of anger with moves like these you will not win the game of life or the life there after. (Galatians 5:19-21) 

The only way you can taste victory in this life is by embracing GOD’s game book(bible). The rules are simple: the choices (moves) are yours to make. Stay GOD centered and focus on the rules (His teachings) to navigate through life’s mini game distractions. If you’re not making the right moves you’re focused on the wrong things and winning the game of life is not in your future. Practice those righteous moves and get better at dodging distractions. People ask how many points do I need to win. The points are relative because the game is never over until you lose a life. In the end there are only two outcomes: You’re gifted with eternal life (Revelations 2:10) or you’re thrown into the fire. (Revelations 20:10) So If you were a betting man in the game of life, what would you bet on righteousness or unrighteousness? It’s that simple.
