Super Bowl Lament

Last Sunday night, as Super Bowl LII ended with a defeated New England Patriots football team (my favorite football team), the morning’s sermon text was brought to mind – Philippians 4:4 – “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice.” In fact, several friends jokingly texted me to ask if I was struggling to apply my own sermon. Thankfully, I wasn’t. To be sure, seeing your favorite sports team lose is disappointing, but shouldn’t be devastating.

As well, despite the unwanted outcome, I was happy for the two players mainly responsible for the Eagle’s championship season – Carson Wentz and Nick Foles – two talented quarterbacks, both professing Christians, who rarely squander a public opportunity to humble themselves and give God glory.
