I Corinthians 13:4

How would you describe your attitude coming into today's game?  How well are you getting along with your teammates and coaching staff?  How about some thoughts on attitudes that transform people and teams?  Let's talk about love in its purest form.

In Paul's first letter to his friends in Corinth at chapter 13 and verse 4 he says, "Love is patient, love is kind.  It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud."  This is God's kind of love, way beyond human emotions and based in deep commitment.

These are attitudes we can take into today's contest.  Exercise patience and kindness with your teammates when they fail.  Put away the envy that separates the players who play a lot from those who play much less.  Put down your prideful boasting over your personal statistics and concentrate on the team's success.  Love is the key for each of these characteristics to be found in us.
