Let no one despise your youth but be an example. 1 Timothy 4:12
I was nine years old when my Dad came to see me play soccer.
After half-time, I had a chance to score. Getting control of the ball, I rushed up the field. Everybody was shouting, nobody tackled me.
Just as I prepared to kick the ball into goal, I realized something terrible. I had run the wrong way. I would have scored against my own team. Boy, did I feel dumb. It's important to run with our team, not against it.
God wants us to help and encourage each other to be good members of His team in the Game of Life.
Prayer: Lord God, be our Coach and help us to be good members of Your team. Amen.
