by Charles R. Swindoll Scriptures: Titus 1:12 One of my mentors used to make me smile when he explained why a football game reminded him of most churches: “Down on the field are 22 people playing their hearts out, who are desperately in need of rest . . . and they’re surrounded by thousands of spectators doing nothing but watching, who are desperately in need of exercise!” It’s a little amusing when you think of it like that, but it’s true! In life, the number of passive spectators is in the millions, compared to those who are passionately engaged in the action. Just look around.
