What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you? 2 You desire but do not have, so you kill. You covet but you cannot get what you want, so you quarrel and fight.

They are devoted. They compete to best themselves as much if not more than they compete to best others. Champions are not just athletes (Simon Sinek).
11 When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I grew up, I put away of childish things (1 Corinthians 13:11).
