This College Basketball Coach Says One Thing Is Most Important To His Team, And It’s Not The Game

What is the most important thing we do with our lives?

What is the most important thing we do with our lives?

For husbands, the answer is often related to their careers and providing for their families. This is noble, but incorrect. If you ask wives, more often than not their answer will have something to do with raising their families and keeping their home. Still a wonderful calling, but still not the right answer.

Some seemingly forgotten confessions from churches long ago answered this question beautifully: we were made to glorify God and enjoy him forever.

For Rick Barnes, this timeless truth is a huge motivator in an unlikely area of his life: his career as the head coach of the all-star college basketball team, the Tennessee Volunteers.

When Barnes leads the Vols to victory on the court, he reminds them that winning isn’t their goal—playing to the best of their ability to the glory of God is.

“It’s important because it’s what we do. I think God has created everything we do. I think He created basketball. I think it’s the platform that we’re supposed to use to be teachers and mentors of young people,” Barnes said in an interview with the Knoxville News Sentinel.

“I hope we’ve taught these guys how to grow up and be good Christian guys, men,” the 30-season veteran coach said at a recent post-game press conference, explaining to reporters that, to him, the quality of his team’s character is infinitely more important than their moves on the court.

“[We] want to understand that this is all kind of fleeting, so we’ve just got to take advantage of it while it’s here.”

How true! We need to do the best we can at everything God has set before us, but we must never forget that it’s all temporary. It’s barely a vapor compared to eternity with our Father.

Ultimately, it’s not our careers, our children, or even our own lives that are the most important thing—it’s what we do with them for the glory of God.

Nike Yanks Redskins Merch From Website As Team Sponsors Demand Name Change

Published

The PC police are at it again, folks. With the racial tensions in America reaching new heights in light of the death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement officers, those who are obsessed with finding racism under every rock and around every corner have once again, for the umpteenth time, set their sights on the Washington Redskins professional football team. Nike, the world’s most popular shoe and sports merchandises brand, has pulled all products related to the Redskins team as sponsors for the Redskins demand that the team change its name to something a little less offensive. Good grief. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Searches for Washington Redskins apparel on Nike’s website yielded no results Thursday night, the day after 87 investment firms sent letters to three Redskins sponsors, Nike, FedEx, and PepsiCo, urging them to end their relationships with the team if it did not change its name, according to Fox Business. “In light of the Black Lives Matter movement that has focused the world’s attention on centuries of systemic racism, we are witnessing a fresh outpouring of opposition to the team name,” the firms said to Nike in the letter. “Therefore, it is time for Nike to meet the magnitude of this moment, to make their opposition to the racist team name clear, and to take tangible and meaningful steps to exert pressure on the team to cease using it.” FedEx specifically holds the naming rights to the team’s home stadium, and the company CEO holds a minority ownership in the franchise. https://twitter.com/RyanFieldABC/status/1278872483605733377 Owner of the Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has been hit time and time again over his choice to keep the name of the team the same, as folks on the left claim it’s offensive to Native Americans. However, Snyder has refused to…

Trump Punts Fauci’s Concerns About NFL Season Taking Place During Coronavirus Pandemic

Published

on

President Trump gave Dr. Anthony Fauci’s concerns over the upcoming NFL season starting during the pandemic a nice, big punt down field, which you can probably bet irked the nation’s top infectious disease expert. Fauci, who is the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, stated that this season of pro-football wasn’t going to happen “unless players are essentially in a bubble.” Trump put Fauci in his place rather quickly by stating that the doctor “has nothing to do” with the NFL. That’s got to sting a little, don’t you think? The president definitely stripped Fauci of his oversized britches, didn’t he? Here’s more on this from Washington Examiner: “They are planning a very safe and controlled opening,” Trump tweeted. Tony Fauci has nothing to do with NFL Football. They are planning a very safe and controlled opening. However, if they don’t stand for our National Anthem and our Great American Flag, I won’t be watching!!! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1274006223013249026 Fauci recommended that players be “insulated from the community” and take a coronavirus test “nearly every day.” “If there is a second wave, which is certainly a possibility and which would be complicated by the predictable flu season, football may not happen this year,” he said. The NFL has already released the game schedule for the 2020 season, so it’s going to be interesting to see what happens over the next few months in regards to the pandemic and if there’s a second wave that might end the season before it has a chance to even start. The president has insisted on multiple occasions that he won’t be watching the games anyway due to the National Anthem protests that happen before every game. According to Ben Carson, several officials have tried to convince Trump to tune in this upcoming season,…
