Reflective Thinking on the Arizona Cardinals Victory

Reflective thinking on a football game?? Yeah I know, how do you get spiritual over a football game. The Apostle Paul encourages us to "make the most of every opportunity". Last night, the Arizona Cardinals defeated the Philadelphia Eagles for the opportunity to play in the Superbowl XLIII. As always, Kurt Warner deflected the glory to Jesus Christ in the post game interview. I am so thankful and encouraged when athletes like Kurt Warner and Tim Tebow boldly proclaim Jesus. These two guys consistently make the most of every opportunity.

This morning I had an awful time getting out of bed. Monday's start early because I have Bible study with the 7th grade Mighty Men. Satan always attacks me in these moments because I am so susceptible. At 5am the alarm clock goes off and it's dark, cold and my stomach churns because my body wants to just fall back to sleep. There are no lights, video cameras, no audience yet God has given me the opportunity to meet with Him on Monday mornings. Not only that, but I have been given the opportunity to teach His Word to the next generation. Forgive me for ever wavering.

Thanks you Kurt Warner. I became a Cardinals fan just to hear you rep Christ in your post game interview. I will be routing for you in two weeks knowing you will make the most of that opportunity as well.
