THE EXCITEMENT of the football World Cup is over for another four years and the tennis at Wimbledon for the next twelve months.
In both competitions there were big surprises with many highly paid ‘prima donnas’ going home early.
In the football some of the expected finalist countries were surprisingly eliminated before the knock out stages and some of the top seeds in the tennis had left by the end of the first week.
But to me, the big news from last week was the rescue of the twelve young boys and their football coach from the cave in Thailand, especially the humility, integrity and calmness of the cavers from the UK.
The one man who after the interview on their return said, “I must go, as I have got to get back to work”, especially impressed me.
All of those who took part in the rescue are the ‘super stars’ risking their lives to save those in danger.
When he was here on earth, Jesus Christ in his humility and integrity faced those who strutted around in their fine clothes and lived like todays ‘prima donnas’ but wanted him out of the way because he brought the true message of God’s love to the ordinary people.
Whoever we are, of whatever status in life, let us live out our lives for the good of those around us by experiencing the Love of God for ourselves
