Developing student athletes within their respective sports is a big responsibility as coaches at all institutions. Where I coach, I see that importance, but also see the importance of having our student athletes grow in all areas of life so that they can bring their best to the place the Lord calls them when their time in college is completed.
On all levels I have been able to witness some great performances and have seen the enjoyment that players receive by working with others on a team. The outcomes of these games require the participants to understand the importance of reacting appropriately to both winning and losing.
Our work in Christ’s kingdom is ultimately a part of God’s hand. We are called to carry out God’s work in ways in which we can use the talents that we have been blessed with. This looks differently for all of us and it is an exciting way to have an impact in our jobs and occupations. By focusing on bringing glory to the Lord in our work it gives our jobs more meaning and satisfaction.
