Can anyone tell me why it’s so hard to pray, but easy to swear? Why clubs are growing and churches are shrinking? Why it’s so hard to repost a christian status, but easy to post some gossip? why we get worried when our phone gets taken away, but not our bible? Why we can worship a celebrity, but not Christ? You gonna ignore this? Christ said, if you deny me in front of your friends, I will deny thee in front of my father. Re-post if you’re not worried about what your friends will think.
What you see above was posted on someone’s Facebook wall tonight. The reason I’m sharing this is because of who posted it. The girl was one of the players on the Upward Basketball team I helped coach 3 years ago. Now, I don’t know if her being on that team had any influence in the decision to post this statement of faith. However, I do know that the ultimate goal of Upward Sports is to teach kids about Jesus Christ. So, maybe…in some small way…we coaches did have an impact on a kid’s life. Whether or not that is true, it does make me feel good seeing one of my former players stepping out and putting this post out there for all her friends to see. You have made your old coach proud! 🙂
