Can competition be good?

1 Corinthians 9:24Remember that in a race everyone runs, but only one person gets the prize. You also must run in such a way that you will win.

1 Corinthians 15:10But whatever I am now, it is all because God poured out his special favor on me—and not without results. For I have worked harder than all the other apostles, yet it was not I but God who was working through me by his grace.

Competition can drive you to improve yourself personally and sharpen your skills. Paul is a good example of a competitive person whom God used to reach people with the Good News about Jesus and to plant churches throughout the world.
