COMPARING SPORTS AND FAITH
Soccer and faith are two of the greatest passions people have throughout the world. What are the similarities between soccer and the spiritual life?
The Bible compares athletics to a growing relationship with God. An athlete needs training, perseverance, encouragement, teamwork, discipline, goals, and a coach. Taking the next steps forward in faith involves many of the same components, as we all need God's guidance, provision, communication, and presence.
