Buckeye Fever

I can't believe it, but football season is officially upon us--yea! Very shortly I will be heading south for Ohio State's home opener and I can't wait. Tonight they take on the Marshall Thundering Herd.

Many are predicting a strong season for the Buckeyes and they are slotted at #2 in the pre-season national rankings right behind the reigning champs, Alabama.

So, tonight we will get a glimpse to see how they look. Will they measure up to what the prognosticators say? Will they overlook Marshall in anticipation of next week's scary opponent, the Miami Hurricanes?

These same questions can be applied to each of us as well. Are you all talk and no action? Do you oftentimes not apply yourself when things are boring or the opponent doesn't seem that tough? God's Word clearly states that we are to be doers of His Word (James 2:26) and we are to work at anything as working for the Lord, not for men (Colossians 3:23).

I'm pretty excited about football season starting up again, Jim. I'm a Steeler fan, so there's a good bit of anticipation about what/how they'll do this season.

Good to see you highlighted on the High Calling Blogs page today.
