The Pro Bowl is done and the big day of the Super Bowl is coming! If you are like, I am looking forward to seeing as many commercials as I do good plays on the field this Sunday. There is just something about all the hype of the game. We seem to not get enough of it from year to year.
Whether or not you picked the players from your fantasy football league to play in the Pro Bowl or saw that the Broncos or Seahawks to be there playing for the championship, it does make you wonder if they really are the best players and teams out there for these occasions. But as much as we try, many times we fail to get the right combination. We want the best of everything.
But as you serve your church and work with your teams, don’t forget the example of Jesus. If I had to choose twelve to be my disciples, you can be assured that these men would not make the cut! They all had pretty significant faults – especially desertion! But Jesus saw something in them that would change the world for the Kingdom of God. Thank goodness, He knew what he was doing!
Maybe you need to look over your teams again as you prepare to serve others. These men and women may not be the most gifted for what you want to get done in your ministry, but God may have other plans for the game of life.
