The games in London dominated The Old Fool’s TV viewing these days. The phrase “team USA” captured his attention as he watched the Americans compete against, for and with each other. An American athlete, whether he or she wins gold, silver, or bronze or no medal at all will emerge at the end to celebrate team USA.
Each athlete is determined to be the best at their game. They trained diligently to that end. But, the celebration of winning in team USA can not happen with out a spirit of good will toward all the competitors.
It appears that women athletes will receive more medals then men athletes for the first time. As the games come to an end this week, The Old Fool expects that all the american athletes will celebrate one team USA.
In the Bible there are metaphors of the Christian as an athlete. Life is described as being like a race or a boxing match. We must train rigorously to win against detractors. The Old Fool expects that God is treating us as winners already.
To win over unbelief there must be good will among Christians. Unity is a required for the team Jesus to win. To subscribe to these notes you may go to http://www.oldmennofools.com/enews.php
