The NCAA’s Big Dance Is Very Cruel

It has been noted that the NCAA’s Big Dance is very cruel.

Of the Sixty-Eight teams chosen to participate only one goes out as the ultimate winner. Sixty-seven teams in the tournament lose their last game of the year.
Of course, the term winner and loser is defined by the final score of the game — not who played the best, who had the most rebounds, who got a bad call from the referees, etc.
The only measure that counts is who scored the most points at the end of the game.
Fortunately, God doesn’t divide us into categories of winners and losers. I doubt if he even keeps score. If anything, a lot of what people may call “losers” in worldly life are in God’s eyes “winners.”
During the Lenten season and during our life no matter how long or short, it’s important we never categorize anyone, including ourselves, as winners as losers.
In life, it is never about the score, but how we play the game.
