Stay in the Game
Our oldest son loves sports. While stretching his back muscles after a long practice he said,”Mom, I sure am sore but I will play again anyway.” In other words, the work was worth the sacrifice. Sometimes, we as Christians need to be reminded of that. If we don’t use our spiritual muscles, they will grow weak. When we do finally use them it can be painful. It is way more fun to be in the game than on the sidelines anyway. We sure miss out on a great deal when we are not involved in God’s work. So dust off your Bible, get on your knees, and plan to attend church on Sunday so your spiritual muscles will stay strong allowing God to work through you.
