Something to Always Talk About

Well, we are finally happy that the NFL Lockout is finally over. The owners and NFLPA finally agree after 132 days and we will have some great gridiron action on Sundays in the coming months. However, there is one man that comes up whenever the offseason is in full effect. That man just happens to be Brett Favre.

We all thought that after last season, number four would hang up the cleats and go back home. However, according to NBC10 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Eagles have a small amount of interest in the old gunslinger to back up Michael Vick, who we talked about on this blog last week.

Vick said earlier Sunday that he would be “honored” to have Favre mentor him, even though the old Packers’ QB isn’t exactly the mentoring type. Most of the people I talk too on a daily basis are tired of hearing about Favre retiring and then unretiring every single day on ESPN or even having cameras producing reports live from his house in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. For the record, I believe Favre should stay retired, but even if it’s not Philly, somebody during the season is going to need a veteran QB if they suffer a huge injury.

Even if you are sick and tired of Favre watch, there is one person you should never stop talking about. That person is Jesus Christ! He is the light of the world and we should want to share the light with everyone around us. During the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus tells us that we should not keep our faith hidden from people.

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house.” (Matthew 5:14-15)

Today, I exhort you to share the Gospel to everyone you meet. Sometimes, the people you meet may tell you that they heard of Jesus already, but that should not stop us from fulfilling what Christ set his disciples out to do during the Great Commission. We need to do what Paul told the Romans and that is “to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. (Romans 12:1).

    I totally agree, I’m thinking he should stay retired also. Love how you tied Jesus in at the end. A lot of people act ashamed of their faith, and that isn’t good. I, for one, will wear my faith on my sleeve. I don’t care who sees. Great post!

    Amen to that one Mike!

    I’m excited to hear that! The point of the site is to do exactly what you said. Tie Jesus into the pieces and to be public about our faith. We shouldn’t care who sees because we are glorifying God in everything that we do.

    I enjoy the way you deliver a good sports story but I really enjoy the way you deliver an inspiring verse or two from our Lord Jesus Christ. Keep up the great work
