I love the Lord Jesus Christ with all of my heart, mind, body and soul and I want to conduct myself in a way that is pleasing to him and the way the Bible teaches Christians should. Having said all of that I really struggle to conduct myself with Christian love, compassion and meekness while playing or coaching sports. Tonight (Thursday) I had a basketball game in a league and I didn't act like a Christian. I didn't cuss or anything like that but I did yell crap real loud a couple of times and slammed the ball on the court once. We are in the playoffs in the league and if we would have lost tonight our season would have been over so everyone wanted to win bad but I realize that is no excuse. I am going to school to be a Special Education teacher and ball coach. I have got to pray hard between now and then asking for the Lord to help me keep my competitive nature but to channel it in a different way. I don't want to make a fool of myself or do anything that would hurt my testimony. Have any of you gentleman or ladies struggled with being Christ-like in competitive situations? If so how did you deal with it?
