I’ve coached basketball for 15 years. Last season our Team motto…Work Hard-Make It Good–Don’t Give Up…was a challenge. At times it seemed our opponents were unbeatable. Our top rival violated ethics…the League ruled against our complaint…it appeared that reward for our hard work would be unfairly denied.
The Team didn’t give up, and finished the season tied for first place! When faced with injustice…while things were looking bad…they made it good!
It’s time for Conservatives to follow our Team’s motto…
Work hard…focus on what’s important. Make it good…in spite of the tactics of our opponents! Don’t give up…EVER!
There is a strong temptation to turn away from our battle…it seems too hard, too costly, and too likely we’ll lose again. But we must not give in to those who intend to destroy this nation. Our goals are worth fighting for! Regardless of the unethical behavior of our opponents, we must make this one good!
“Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel, and not frightened in anything by your opponents. This is a clear sign to them of their destruction, but of your salvation, and that from God.” (Philippians 1:27-28/ESV)
The purpose of this blog is to encourage Christ-followers to see God’s Big Picture and be a part of it!
