Yea baby!!!! The US won their match against Ghana – congrats to the US team 🙂
One of the things that I love about soccer / football / futbol is how it is accessible to everyone. Wherever I go around the world, I see evidence of this sport in some fashion or shape (wobbly goals from tree branches, balls made from tape and cut up tires, lines in the sand for field markers, etc). I also love that almost anyone can play it, regardless of age, experience, gender, financial status, educational experience, etc. – I even recently put my name on a list to possibly play in some recreational league (no call yet).
In my thinking, Jesus is a little bit like soccer / football / futbol:
- He plays well with others,
- He is universally appealing,
- He has the power to unify people to noble living &
- He is relevant to all of us, regardless of age, ethnicity, gender, educational background, financial status, experience, etc.
Happy World Cup & don’t forget the international coffee ,)
