In tonight’s game our girls won primarily because of a discipline Coach Jon is instilling in them… looking up! Learning to get one’s eyes off of one’s own feet and the immediate surroundings and look ahead to see one’s teammates. It was amazing how many of our points/opportunities came out of this discipline. And it may sound like an obvious thing but if you have watched very much kids’ hoops you would know that most dribble looking down at the ball and seldom see in front of themselves.
Our Christian walk should be the same way… we need to get our eyes off of ourselves and look for our teammates to give them an assist! I know I write about this often but it is truly the core of Christian living… intentional serving… looking up!
Paul was so serious about it that in 1 Corinthians 13 he devotes time to describe those that can seemingly do great Christian things but explains that if they don’t have love/charity they are NOTHING!
Take time to read the love chapter today!
Take time to intentionally serve someone today… get after it… be a difference maker!
