Is Sports Your Purpose?

1 Corinthians 10: 31“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God. Not long after I was born I’m sure my parents scratched their heads wondering where I came from.  They were both active, enjoying hiking and my dad even climbed mountains, but competitive sports didn’t […]

A Consistent Life

2 Timothy 4: 5 But you, keep your head in all situations, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, discharge all the duties of your ministry. The Dana Foundation is a private US philanthropic organization whose goal is to advance brain research.  A study, Mental Preparation of High-Level Athletes (by Kayt Sukel, July 23, 2012) interviewed key […]

There is a tradition in the United States where the winning team of the various professional sporting organizations gets honoured by appearing at the White House with […]

Loyalty vs Expediency

Ruth 1:  14Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay.  Your people will be my people and your God my God. I am drawn to loyalty.  I personally love to hear stories of athletes who played for losing teams for many years, often watching others teammates leave, often giving up […]
