I visited a friends football scrimmage last night. It was obvious this young man had little to no understanding of what he was doing on the field due to lack of knowledge. As a gifted athlete, this was difficult to watch. Not the kids fault and it’s hard to put it on a, likely overloaded, coach. However, it can also be dangerous.
Over the last several years I feel God has allowed me to see the similarities between the football and our walk with Jesus Christ. I felt compassion for this young man tonight and spent about five minutes with him after the scrimmage to understand his needs. After asking the coach for permission, I gave the young man some instruction.
So I created this video to help young players attempting to play the game for the first time to better understand what terminology coaches may be using. My hopes are that removing some of the confusion will allow younger players to hesitate less, enjoy the game, protect themselves by understanding where they need to be, and PLAY HARD between whistles.
Seek first the Kingdom of God and these things will be added to you….Read Matthew 6…and may the Spirit of God divinely inspire you to receive the wisdom you desire. May God remove the confusion from our lives, prevent us from hesitating, en…JOY the life God has given us, protect ourselves from the lion, the devil, who desires to devour us, and PLAY HARD between the whistles (sunrise to sunset).
I hope you enjoy the video. If you need more detail leave a comment below with your question and I will be sure to answer it, Lord willing.
May the peace of the Lord be with you.
