Lose – never look down.
Never look down on someone who has lost.
“you’ve won today because someone has lost”.
This has been a factor about competitions which always “disturbed me deeply”.
Here’s the “whole story”:
Winning or losing is not the matter.
The crux of the matter is (compare):
(i) Winning or losing for the “wrong” reasons (bad; not to be emulated).
(ii) Winning or losing for the “right” reasons (good; to be emulated).
This Principle may be gathered from here:
“But how is it to your credit if you receive a beating for doing wrong and endure it? But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God.” – apostle Peter (1 Peter 2:20)
