For sports fans this is an exciting time of the year.
The high school, college and professional football seasons are getting underway.
Major league baseball is just a month or so away from the World Series which I hope the New York Yankees win. Of course, that’s my personal preference.
When we think of champions. . .we think of those who win sports titles. . .either as a team or through individual efforts.
It is not easy to become a champion. . .it takes determination. . .practice. . .exercise. . . discipline and, yes. . .commitment to never give up, give in, back up, back down, sit down, quit or walk away until victory is achieved.
God has given each of us the heart of a champion far beyond the field of athletic endeavor. Much like most earthly fathers who want their children to be champions in whatever they undertake. . .our Heavenly Father desires for you and I. . .His children to win in the game of life.
By the way, if you didn’t have an earthly father to root you on for whatever reason … you do have a heavenly Father who is in your corner during every bout. He wants you to come out swinging to put every obstacle in your rear view mirror and excel in life.
