We just returned from the boys’ 5th soccer game and all I can say is that they are learning good sportsmanship! Bless their hearts, they haven’t won a game yet! Four losses and one tie. They played their little hearts out. The other teams are just stronger.
In all five games, they played giving their best. And, they accepted defeat with grace, style, and dignity. Who could ask for more? I believe this experience will make them stronger team players, more encouraging to others, and less critical. As a mom, I wish they could win a few games but for right now, they are learning a lesson in humility.
29 He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. 30 Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; 31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
