I’m looking forward to the SEC Championship Game tomorrow. Too bad UGA is not in the mix; that would be incredible. But, I believe it’s going to be a great game between Florida and Alabama. Florida has been strong for years but I’ve been saying for a while now to watch Bama. Once they got Saban, I knew they were on the rise. It’s going to be a battle for sure. When it’s all said and done, I’m pretty sure an SEC team will be in the Championship Game against a Big 12 school. And, as an SEC loyalist, you know I’ll be pulling for them over the Big 12.
As I was thinking football my mind was drawn to larger things. How nice would it be for us to all come together for a common purpose and goal. Sure, there may be some issues and circumstances where we fall on opposite sides, but in the big game, it’s important to join together against a common foe. I know I’m probably reading WAY too much into this game and the National Championship showdown, but I’m somewhat inspired when I can root for a team I’ve pulled against just a few weeks ago. Interesting how football intersects with life and ministry.
