Unhealthy Competitors

On April 11, 1945, a Kamikaze pilot attacked the U.S.S. Missouri battleship. Although the pilot succeeded in reaching the target, he failed in his mission, the only casualty was the pilot himself.

The crew was about to drop the pilot’s body into the ocean, along with his shattered plane, when Captain Callaghan stopped them. He told his men that this pilot had tried to kill them, but he was a soldier and deserved the dignity of having a full soldier’s burial.

Proverbs 24 teaches, “Do not gloat when your enemy falls; when they stumble, do not let your heart rejoice, or the Lord will see and disapprove and turn his wrath away from them.”

Just as you hope your competitors treat you with respect, you should do likewise for them.
