Two very different scenarios happened in NFL Football today. Did you watch the games?
Game ONE: San Francisco Giants vs. New Orleans Saints.
Game TWO: Denver Broncos vs. New England Patriots.
Game one was exciting — a nail-biter, and VERY FUN to watch. Neither team gave up, and it required us to watch until the end.
Game two was boring — and I didn’t want to watch very much after the first half. It was truly one-sided.
When we are going through a WALK WITH GOD, the challenge is to NOT LOOK at the SCORE along the way. We must stay in the race, stay in the “competition” lest we fall.
Don’t get bored, God MAY be developing some very strong character in you. HE is on your side — UNTIL THE END! So stand firm, and don’t forget to keep fighting for YOUR VERY LIFE!
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us . . . Hebrews 12:1 (NIV)
