In Lesson 51 of the My Agreements with Me for Believers workbook, we are discussing the importance of "Playing Win.Win." playing win/win is all about being in alignment with the Creator of the Universe from True Choice. Because when God wins, we win. True Choice is walking in God’s truth with integrity. There is no arrival in this game of life. There will always be opportunities for growth no matter where you are. As you continue to seek God’s guidance while looking for solutions that support others, you will live in a place of true choice that empowers your life and those that you touch.
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given him" (James 1:5-6).
It is significant because playing win/win is all about being in alignment with the Creator of the Universe (God) from True Choice. Because when God wins/ we win.
Nugget #1: There is NO Arrival. In this life we are either growing or decaying. Therefore, there is no arrival. We always have opportunities for growth no matter where we are in our life. We love God because He first loved us (win/win). As well in God’s word we are commanded to love our neighbors as ourselves (win/win). It’s not if I lose, you must lose (lose/lose) or I will only if you will (win/lose). Rather instead it’s “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.” - Luke 6:38
Nugget #2: Free Will is our Super Power. Our True Choice (win/win) comes from our authentic self which is our free will, which even God himself will NOT come against. You see, God is not a dictator, nor is He a tyrant. With God is easy. It’s an open invitation and a desire to see us prosper and live in abundance. Playing Win/Win (True Choice) comes from a place of “trusting God” and an attitude of I want to. It’s a God-first attitude, where you align yourself with God’s wisdom by taking personal accountability for the choices you make. You are solution oriented, proactive, and humble while seeking solutions that honor God and serve others.
Nugget #3: We are without excuse. “For ever since the creation of the world His invisible attributes, His eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly seen, being understood through His workmanship [all His creation, the wonderful things that He has made], so that they [who fail to believe and trust in Him] are without excuse and without defense” (Romans 1:20). Clearly by the very nature of His creation no one can deny that there is a creator, yet many do. Are you one of them? There is NO excuse to deny God and His creation. There is countless evidence to prove God is real, and Jesus walked the earth.
Going Deeper in the Word
Here are some additional verses to help guide you through this lesson:
Playing Win/Win (True Choice) - The story of David and Goliath as an example depicts a young shepherd boy named David who was willing to take on a giant soldier of the Philistines because his faith was bigger than his fear. See other stories in the Bible in the books and verses below.
“And as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.”
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.”
“If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him.”
“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.”
Playing to Lose (False Choice) - The story of David who lusted after Uriah’s wife to commit an adultery and Ananias and Sapphira who sell a piece of property but dishonestly hold back a portion of the profits while pretending to give the full amount back to their community.
2 Samuel 11:5-27
Playing indecisive (Avoiding Choice) - The story of Jonah is a fantastic lesson of avoiding choice. See verses below for more context.
Jonah 1-2; 2 Kings 14:25
James 1:8-18, 4
Not playing at all (Deny Choice) - In the story of Jesus when Pilate saw that he was accomplishing nothing, but rather that a riot was starting, he took water and washed his hands in front of the crowd gesturing and indicating his refusal to take the blame for executing an innocent man.
In this lesson we discussed Playing Win / Win. Do you play to win? To lose? Or to NOT play at all? Or in most of your endeavors do you seek a win / win scenario?
If you really want to align yourself with playing win / win you must realize that’s all God has ever wanted for you and me. The greatest commandment sums it up, “Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?” Jesus replied: “ 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. ' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.”
And as you begin to look at your mother, your brother, your neighbor, etc., you will begin to see win / win opportunities all around you. Remember there are no victims per se, only the victimized. Suffering is optional and you have been given everything you need to succeed.
The following story depicts this very well. Gideon’s Victory (Judges 7). In order to prove to Gideon and the people of Israel and their enemies, God reduced Israel's army significantly to emphasize divine intervention in their victory over the Mediates. It was through Gideon’s trust and obedience and strategic thinking that led to his victory, demonstrating the concept of playing win / win under God’s hand and guidance.
