Ready For The Boys of Fall?

Auburn-AlabamaRoll Tide! and War Eagle!

Are you ready for Football?

Are you ready for the uniforms, the helmets,  the cleats, the shoulder pads, and the PRIDE?

Are you ready for the tackles, the blocks, and the scores?

Are you ready to watch COURAGE get back up when its down? Are you ready for TEAMWORK?

This week it begins!

Many have said the game of life is a lot like football.

Paul “Bear” Bryant:
 In life, you’ll have your back up against the wall many times. You might as well get used to it.

James Ralph “Shug” Jordan:
Wisdom is knowing what to do next, skill is knowing how to do it, and virtue is doing it.

Vince Lombardi:
Football is like life – it requires perseverance, self-denial, hard work, sacrifice, dedication and respect for authority.”

Football really is like life. In the game, you and I are its  receivers, and God is the passer. And what He passes to us is goodness, the light that shines in the darkness. We may refuse to catch what has been passed to us. Or we may be so bogged down we may not even recognize it.

But those who  do catch it and recognize it are meant to pass it on. We are literally asked by God to be the hands of Jesus Christ on Earth in our lifetimes.

That’s a huge request.

But  let’s do it. Let’s stand in the huddle and listen to the call. Then let’s go virile with it.

Let’s run with the ball. Don’t fumble it. Don’t drop it. And when the right time comes to pass it, let’s make that play great enough for a touchdown.
