  • Having Character In Suffering

    Devotion of the Week

    A couple of years ago, my husband, Luke, tried out for the USA Pan-Am basketball team. After a great tryout, the coaches told him that he and another player were the same type of player, so they were choosing to release Luke from the team. When Luke asked what he could have done to make the outcome different, they replied, “It’s like having a car in blue and green. If you’re the blue car, we just chose the green car.” It was disappointing for Luke to think that he did everything right, they just simply didn’t choose him…

    Devotion of the WeekSport • Football

    Although Isaiah 48:17 was a specific message to Israel, the latter part of the verse reveals a truth about God—that He “directs you in the way you should go.”
