I live in a little college town where just about everybody lives and breathes according to what their beloved football team does during a Saturday night game. This year, they have lost two in a row. It's unthinkable! But understandable, because last spring they lost their coach after a big scandal and an interim coach has come to hold his finger on the dam to keep it from breaking through but it's not working. You've never seen so many people venting their frustrations on call-in shows, Facebook, Twitter, etc. You get the picture. But, why? Why pin your hope on something so fleeting, so worldly? Why not pin your hope on Jesus, who never disappoints? I, for one, choose Team Jeaus. "I love you, Lord; You are my Strength. The Lord is my Rock, my Fortress, and my Savior; my God is my Rock, in whom I find protection. He is my Shield, the Power that saves me, and my place of Safety", Psalm 18:1-2.
