Failure, disqualified – now what?
Just a quick look at your own life will show how much love is lacking in our world: disappointment, wounds caused by other people and our own mistakes have put us on the losing side of life more often than we’d like to admit.
A matter of trust
In sports, players who break the rules are warned, penalized or even thrown out of the game. Players or even entire teams can miss the goal because they do not follow the coach’s instructions, get injured or simply because they don’t have the stamina to continue.
The Bible says that «missing the goal» in life is sin. It’s not about making simple mistakes or just doing the wrong thing; instead, it’s about our basic attitude of independence and mistrust toward God.
