The USA has done it again, another gold medal. I have heard this statement a number of times over the past 2 weeks. The Olympics will be winding down soon in Rio, but the sports fandom will carry on for quite a while.
I love sports. I began playing organized sports at the age of 5 and I don’t plan on stopping anytime soon, even if how much I play has slowed. Sports has been a part of my life for a long time. I hope that sports will continue to be a part of my life as my children grow up and gain interest in them. However, I want to make sure that I and my children have a solid “Theology of Sport“. The apostle Paul gives us a great place to begin building our theology of sport in 1 Timothy 4:1-10 and this article helps us think through it.
Enjoy watching the Olympics. Enjoy your sports. And help others enjoy sports also. But as always enjoy being the Lord’s people on the Lord’s day this weekend!
