Rudy Giuliani, the former mayor of New York City and George Steinbrenner, the owner of the New York Yankees knew one another well. When Steinbrenner died, Giuliani had this to say about him, "The one thing about George you could always count on was, there were no ulterior motives. It was all about winning. George wanted to win for New York and for the Yankee tradition. No rebuilding years, no four-year plans. He wanted to win now."

Steinbrenner was focused on winning.
Christians must be focused on knowing Christ.
