Character 2

Your character is more important than how good you are at any sport. (Tom Roy, former coach, sportswriter)

Many of today’s youth strive to excel in some sport ~ and why not? College athletes are now able to earn money from their sports activity, and they are often groomed for moving up to lucrative contracts as pros. Coach Roy notes, “Your athleticism is only temporary, but your character, the type of person you are, lasts forever.” And he concludes, “Be the best person you can be.”

All athletes are disciplined in their training. They do it to win a prize that will fade away, but we do it for an eternal prize. (1 Corinthians 9:2, 5)
