Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word. It tells you what’s impressive and what’s not. The disciples made it a point to mention to Jesus how impressive the temple was. Jesus informed them that not one stone will be left on another. That’s why there is no temple in Jerusalem today. But there will be. Have you ever noticed how we tend to be impressed by things, that shouldn’t impress us? God’s Word always gives you the plumb line for life - what’s valuable, and what’s not, what’s impressive, and ‘not so much.’ I saw an interview recently – and just realized the greatest coach of all time. And I can’t believe I’m saying this, because they are our bitter rivals – He’s the coach of ‘the team up north.’ His record isn’t stellar, he’s lost to his major rival (us) multiple years in a row – enough to fire most coaches. But last year He did really well and the team was highly successful, surpassing their foe in perhaps the greatest rivalry in sports for the first time in many years. I’ve never hated him, but I’ve never been a fan, until yesterday – when God showed me – the greatest coach of all time. How does God rank coaches? By wins? Conference Titles? National Championships? I think God rates them by character and influence. Like He rates queens, like Esther, whom Mordecai admonished – “If you say nothing, you and your family will perish, and God will bring deliverance from another place… and who knows that you have not been raised up for such a time as this.” These are those times. How many winning coaches run around on their wives, commit recruiting violations, verbally abuse players and staff… That’s not a winning coach – that’s a disgrace. How many times have you heard one of these famous coaches say… God, Family, and Football. Those three priorities in that order. It sounds good, but are they telling the truth? This coach did. In an interview ripe with social pressure, the cancel crowd just salivating waiting for a coach or politician, actor, musician, company owner or influencer to slip up – to say one thing that is not endorsed by the godless left – the purveyors of perversion, the shills for socialism. The topic: Life - and the sanctity of it. Better not go there… This coach did. In an interview when asked that question, he didn’t blink. He said we’re about God, Family, and Football. And I think He’s the first coach that really means it. He said when it comes to life and the issue of abortion. We should have a conversation about it – he recognizes people have passionate opinions on both sides. But he said “It is too important an issue not to talk about.” And then He did what no coach I’ve ever seen has done. Unlike companies today – like Kroger who pay their employees four thousand dollars to kill their baby, why not help them have the baby. (That’s why after a thousand dollar a month habit at Kroger for years, we refuse to shop there any longer. We’ll go to Aldi, or Walmart. But unlike Kroger and these Corporations who have lost any moral compass, this coach of a major University Football program said out loud, not just what He believes, but how he backs it up. He said what He tells every one of his players. Don’t have an abortion. (I’m sure he encourages faithfulness to your wife and family) but if you made a mistake, don’t kill the child. Let the child live, just have the baby, and if you don’t want it, or no-one in your family wants the child, my wife and I will take it. We have a big house! (Ironically the name of their football stadium) but the coach was talking about his house. He said, we’ll just raise that child as a part of our family. Wow! He's got a hundred players on His team. Perhaps the most polarizing topic in America today – the cowardice of the Supreme Court to refuse to fix what they broke in 1973 – allowing murder of innocent children. Their evil decision has been taught to children and young adults as ‘settled law’ making them actually believe murdering someone is a Constitutional Right? It is not. The Supreme Court doesn’t make laws – the legislature does – 6th Grade Government Class – that college graduates cannot seem to understand. After another failure of the Supreme Court - now left to the states, this abomination has created a divide in America not seen since the days of slavery. Life and Death states, just like Slave and Free States. God is watching. The blood is crying out from the ground. If you think God will do nothing, you have no understanding of the Holiness of God. Yet this coach did more than have a silent opinion. This coach spoke the truth boldly, something that if he had a losing record, could have lost him his job. Praise God for Michigan’s success last year. Did I just say that as an Ohio State Buckeye fan for life! Yes I did. Praise God, because it gave a man of great courage a platform to stand on – and more than just say something, he put his money, his own home, and his own family – where his mouth is. Just let the baby live. If no one wants it - we’ll take that baby. Choose Life! Yesterday, I just discovered the greatest coach of all time. Not limited to his profession, but speaking truth to a nation. What if every coach that quotes "God, Family, and Football" – ad nauseum, would join with Jim Harbaugh and give the same offer to their players? Be faithful to your wife… before and after you are married, but if you’ve made a mistake, let the baby live! If no one wants it, we will raise that child as a part of our family… We have a big house. Every single coach has a big house. What if coaches around the country joined Jim Harbaugh in this offer to their players. And if they can’t, just connecting a network of families who would willingly adopt an abortion risk child. It could change the mindset of a country. It could turn away judgment from a nation for the blood of the innocents. I’ve just realized the greatest coach of all time. I didn’t know it ‘til yesterday. I pray that God starts a tidal wave of truth and repentance in this nation – so that we return to our roots – the recognition of Divine Providence for these United States of America. And that we would return to our original pursuit of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Of liberty and justice for all. We just need a few people like the greatest coach ever… to live their motto. God, Family, and Football. I will no longer say, “Michigan Sucks, Go Bucs” – there are many things so much bigger than football.
