Yours is a unique privilege. How many people around the world would love to compete in your sport? How many would love to see what you see and hear what you hear?
In Matthew chapter 13 and verse 16, Jesus says, “Blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because they hear.” Sure you can all see things and hear sounds, on the physical level, but there’s more to this.
Be thankful on another level all together. There are untold thousands of people who would love to see what you see and to hear what you hear on a daily basis. To see sports from the bench, rather than from the seats. To hear what can’t be heard from the top row of the stadium is what some people dream about.
On still another level, you have a unique privilege to be on a team and to experience the depth of relationship that is much rarer in the non-sport world.
As you prepare to compete today give thanks for what your eyes see and your ears hear. Look for the inspirational performances by your teammates. Listen for the encouraging words from coaches. Listen also for the Lord’s blessing.
