I wanted to share with you all a post by C.J. Mahaney on how he encourages godliness with his son concerning sports. What a great example Mahaney is to us all concerning our need to put God at the center of everything and not just pretend like we do!
Here's an excerpt:
"Playing sports holds great potential for growth in godliness for our sons, but only if we as fathers lead our sons theologically and strategically. I fear that all too often our sons devote significant time to playing sports with little growth in godliness. Here is where the example and leadership of a father can make all the difference. It is our responsibility as fathers to teach and prepare our sons with biblical priorities prior to a game (or practice) and not to assume that we have fulfilled our fatherly responsibility simply by attending the game."
