"…And she smiles at the future." ~Proverbs 31:25

Supermen

This past Sunday evening, like every Sunday evening, I attended a worship service. Walking into the auditorium at about ten minutes until six, I looked around…and what I saw impressed me.

OK, Amy, what did you see?

Glad you asked! I saw….

…men.

Men, everywhere.

Men who, had there not been a regularly-scheduled worship service, would surely have been glued to their TV screens, eating and yelling as they watched the Superbowl along with much of the rest of the nation.

But they weren’t.

Because to these men–these men who love and follow football with the most avid fans–there was something even more important going on.

And men, please know this: We noticed!

No, that’s not why you did it. You did it because you are the kind of men who lead your families by example. You not only state your priorities; you live them. You understand that the sacrifice you made–while it was a sacrifice–was nothing, NOTHING, compared to what He did for you on the cross.

You get it. And you live it. And I thank you for that.

Your commitment to put Christ first, no matter what, inspires me. It sets an incredible example for my children. It reminds me to think about eternity, not just the here-and-now.

So thank you, men. You are heroes to me. You may have missed the Superbowl, but you clearly haven’t missed “the point.”

As far as I’m concerned, you are Supermen.

Thanks for stopping by,

    LOVE this!

  2. I keep wanting to relate the Super Bowl to Hebrews 6:1 and 9:14.

    Living works are done for God and dead works are at least vain (useless) if not eternally destructive. Finally, because of all that is part of any NFL game, I pondered which category football might fall into? Can anyone truthfully say he watches the NFL games for God?

    Dead works are just that. They are works not done for the Lord—mind you…*not necessarily sin,* but at best just vain or useless time spent.

    It is so good to see that some are not swallowed up in football or any other dead work for that matter.

  3. Your writing abilities never cease to amaze me. Great post!
