Thank You – #22

Thank You No. 22

Today, I’m thankful for sports.

I’ve been a sports fan as long as I can remember.  I enjoy playing sports, and I like watching sports as well.  I’m thankful that God allows us to have interests just for fun.  There are so many sports stories that encourage and inspire me.  Sports have also taught me how to handle defeat and victory.

Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.  I Corinthians 9:25-27

Why are you thankful today?
