… I die daily. 1 Corinthians 15:31
Consistency and self-control play into team cohesion. If a coach is one person when winning and another person after a loss, players are often on edge and don’t know who the real coach is. If a coach has trouble remaining focused and in control in the heat of a game, often lashing out at officials and players in anger, players also become undisciplined and erratic.
Many coaches would like to be more consistent, more in control, and more caring for their players but have trouble when things go wrong. This is where the spiritual dimensioncan begin to help. We see the importance of discipline in the weight room and on the playing field. Top performance depends on daily discipline, showing up on a regular basis and putting in the work the game requires. Similarly, spiritual discipline is important if we want to gain control of our emotions and our attitude toward those for whom we are responsible.
What do you think it means to be a Christian every day of your life?
How can you be more consistent in your Christian walk?
