Both our boys and girls varsity basketball teams had successful weekends playing in our conference tournaments. While they did not come out victorious, they ended their season shining Christ’s love on the court. During Trinity’s overnight trip to Jacksonville for the boy’s tournament, the students spent some time in God’s word studying how they can play to the glory of God, because God said in 1 Corinthians, “whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” After some meditation, the students came up some fantastic answers, showcasing them on a sign that was proudly raised during the team’s final game as a
reminder of why we play…or do anything for that matter. And if a big sign wouldn’t do the trick, the players drew crosses on their thumbs so that whenever anyone struggled on the court, they just threw a thumbs up to remind themselves and their teammates of why they were there.
And that’s why we do this…this whole sports thing. It’s not about the record at the end of the season or about the amount if rebounds you get. It’s about playing in a way that makes people say, “wow, that kid loves Jesus.” I am so pleased to share that I fully believe our student athletes did this on the court this year. If you see any of our basketball players, be sure to congratulate them on a job well done!
