An Important 6 Minutes…

For those of us who are college football fans, this is a slow time of year. But, last week something great, and slightly strange happened. Many adult men like myself, watched with interest as 17-19 year old kids signed athletic scholarships to their chosen school. We were thrilled to see the future of our team, understanding full well that regardless of the promising athletic ability these young men have, some will inevitably be busts. Some will get homesick and quit, some will just leave the program for various reasons, others will not live up to the hype, and then there will be a minority who are good to great. I say all of this because, it is amazing how this can cause us to be enamored but, it is also amazing how little we can be enamored with the things that really matter. Take the next few minutes of your day (6:11 to be exact), and watch this clip by David Platt and see how this really hits home in so many of our lives. But, don’t just think this through with regard to football…pick whatever sport, hobby or interest battles for your heart.
