Ep. 121 | In The Game of Life There Are Players and Pawns
Published December 29, 2021 by Tom Hermann
In the game of life there are two types of people: the pawns and the players. Just like chess, the players of the game determine the strategy and movements of the pawns. The pawns move slowly and are relatively easy to defeat while the players of the game can see the whole board and utilize the differnet pieces of the game in order to win.
In today's episode, we're going to talk about the five characteristics that define the pawns and the fiver characteristics that define the players. We're also going to discuss why it's so important for you, as a believer, to be a player in the game instead of a pawn. God has uniquely created you to be a produce and value creator. You've been given a unique assignment that can only be accomplished by "playing the game" instead of being "played by the game".
Remember, God has put everything in place for you to succeed in your life purpose. The purpose of life is not just trying to survive but to live a life that brings glory to his kingdom and is attractively different.
As believers, we're called to "buy back" our time because the days are full of toil and striving.
A pawns mindset will never allow them to "buy back" their time.
Pawns work think in terms of surviving and working so they can stop versus players who work to create and make the world a better place.
The success of your God-given assignment is determined by your "pawn" or "player" mentality
