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 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.
