“Preaching – and the sermons that express it – must be driven by a passion for the glory of God. Admittedly, it’s a narrow perspective that goes against the grain of much preaching practice today. But narrow is not always bad.”
Tony Dungy’s Quiet Strength is the best sports book I have ever read. I have always respected Dungy. Now I’m a fan! Tony Dungy is not defined by football; rather, he is a man devoted to serving God. Read how he closes his book. Then find a copy and read the entire thing!
Building a legacy – not necessarily on the field but in those places that most people will never see. Trying to be faithful in the position God has given me. I love coaching football, and winning a Super Bowl was a goal I’ve had for a long time. But it has never been my purpose in life.
My purpose in life is simply to glorify God…I coach football [but] I want to help people see the path to eternal life through Christ, to enjoy an abundant life now, and to fulfill their God-given purpose here.
