I was talking with a friend of mine yesterday who is very involved in the youth soccer league in our community. He was telling me about another friend of ours whose son was just cut from his team during tryouts.

Rich said he was shocked that our friend's son was cut because he is one of the better players and has been playing for years. Then he found out that he went into tryouts knowing he was going to make the team so he just did a lot of goofing around.

The coach saw this as not being a team player and being undisciplined so he cut him.

As it ended up, two players left that team to join another team so he was allowed to join the team again. But what a great life lesson for him! What a great life lesson for us!

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.
Colossians 3:23-24
