Winning Streak

The Miami Heat had their winning streak of 27 games broken this week by the Chicago Bulls. There was a lot of hype about the potential for setting the record for the most consecutive games won and a lot less focus on the team now that it's over. The interesting thing is that unless the Heat win 16 total games once the
playoffs start, the winning streak won't matter at all. To be a champion a team has to win the right games at the right time otherwise it's merely a footnote in a season where someone else was the biggest winner.

Are we winning when it counts? Are we available for our family when they need us the most or only when it fits into our schedule? Are we stepping up to make the tough decisions or only making the easy ones? Are we taking a stand for Christ when there is opposition or just when no one else notices? All of the "wins" count, but we need to be willing to do the hard work to succeed when it really matters to the people around us.
