Athlete, Be Selfless

"Dear friends, let us continue to love one another, for love comes from God. Anyone who loves is a child of God and knows God."
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:7‬ ‭

You know what is surprisingly crazy and running rampant today in our culture? Just think about it, unfortunately in the world of sports and athletics we can read or see a fresh example of selfishness on display. Just this past weekend we saw maybe one of the best wide receivers, talent wise, in the NFL, give a masterclass on what selfishness can look like. (He was rewarded for it too).

Athlete, it is not very hard to be different and stand out because you choose to be SELFLESS.
Let’s be honest, easier said than done right? Yep. Because we are naturally selfish beings. You can't always muster up what it takes to be selfless, especially if you don't feel like you benefit from your niceness.

Accept this challenge today. Read 1 John 4:7-21. This passage shares that we can be selfless because of how Jesus was selfless toward us. In fact, if he wasn't we wouldn't have ANY HOPE.

Application: As you continue to pursue your teammates this week, remember engaging with them in meaningful conversation, being there for them, showing them love, telling them about Jesus and Truths that can forever change their lives. It's About More Than What's Good For You!
