Monopoly

fun_stuff_wallpapersI love Monopoly!  I guess it is my competitive spirit or perhaps my love for business that causes me to adore this game.  I, however, never get to play it.  In our house, I have been banned from playing Monopoly with the family.  For some reason Sonya doesn’t like to play with me.

She says that I am a cut throat.  That I am too cocky when I play.  She says that I carry a smirk on my face when I make them pay the high rent for my hotel districts.  But the one that she says the most is that I brag too much when I win.  I do not know what she is talking about.  I am undefeated.  No one has ever beat me at monopoly.  I am the monopoly king of our family and beyond.  Where does she get it that I brag too much?  For me the object of teh game is to win.  To vanquish my opponents and to bankrupt them.  That is the goal. 

Beyond, monopoly the goal of our life is to win.  Not against one another but against the enemy of our souls.  He seeks to kill, steal and destroy.  That is his purpose.  Our purpose is to thwart his efforts and vanquish our opponent.  Now granted in this game of life,  there is no room for bragging or being cocky.  In fact, that is what will usually bring a down fall.  Rather our goal is to win the battles we face and not give up.  Never give up!  We may get bruised from time to time, but we can win the fight.

Our eye is on the prize at the end.  Our goal is the finish line.  The Bible doesn’t say we have to win first place.  We must make it to the finish line.  Greater is He that is in you than he that is in this world.  You are more than a conqueror!  You can do all things through Christ which strengthens you.  You can win the game!  God is on your side!

  1. I fully agree with mother. He’s a cut throat and a slumlord. I would suggest he start putting his “Christian” Principals to his business practice.

  3. My goodness it seems everyone is really down on you competitive spirit.
    I can hold heartly agree with them. It is not just Monopoly, but football
    and anything else that may have a win or lose solution. But you had
    better start remembering what Hannah said about her e-mails, and your
    reply to that. It’s been said “It;s not if you win or lose, but how you play
    the game.” Do you remember who won the gold medal in discus in the
    olympics. Come on grow up and be a man. lol.

    I have been to busy to bug you lately, but could not pass this up.

    • Judy, I have been wondering where you were. I thought you didn’t love me anymore. Now after reading this diatribe against me, I know that your love only grows. I am competitive. If your Cowboy’s would get more competitive towards their opponents instead of their teammates they might go to the Super Bowl.
