In his weekly radio show a few days after the NFC championship game, quarterback Aaron Rodgers said he thinks God does not care about football outcomes. A caller asked Rodgers if any outcomes of games impacted his faith in any way. Rodgers said his faith is not changed by the results of sports events. Rodgers went on to say basically that God has more important things to care about than the final score of a sports event or an awards show.
I agree completely. We as humans should not even bother praying about such mundane things. Dave and Brit Morin understand that, in sports as in other competitions, they will be a winner and a loser. Prayer does not impact what will happen. If people must pray they should pray for important things such as you and your family’s well being. Pray for world peace and an end to poverty and world hunger. These things affect the future of the world and are much more important. Sports is a form of entertainment and should be put in it’s proper perspective.
God cares about individuals, not the results of a game being played.
In sports as in life, both winning and losing provide valuable life lessons for everyone.
