football

Posted by slykwyk on October 23, 2009

I am playing flag football this year in a league in Fairfax County with some friends from church.  After last nights debacle of me playing QB, I came to some revelations about myself.  Thought I would share…

I Am Competitive

I HATE to lose.  I HATE to not be better than the guy I am covering.  I HATE when I don’t make the perfect play.  I HATE losing (did I mention that?).  I really can’t stand to lose.  It hurts.  It’s painful.  It bothers me.  So much so that after the game, I want to pick up my ball, jump in the car, and head home.  No conversation, no interaction, just head home.

I wonder what would happen if I had that same competitive spirit for people far from God?

I Am Passionate

I love to win!  I love to play hard.  I love to get out and run around.  I love to try and give all I can to make sure we take the victory!

I wonder what would happen if I had that same passion every day to impact people’s lives?

I Am Getting Older

I lost a step or four (not that I had one at anytime in my life anyway).  It takes a few days for the soreness to go away.  The young whipper snappers have a little giddy-up in their step.

I figure I am almost to the half-way point in my life and I wonder if I am looking at that as an excuse to slow down or am I looking to use that as motivation to leave the biggest mark I can?

I believe we can learn through sports.  I know these items aren’t earth shattering, but through a little football, I learned a little about myself.  And what’s next…
