As some of my friends and I sat in on the first quarter of our Lady Defenders Basketball game today, we were reminded of one of the unique aspects of BBC Athletics. Its not that we necessarily dominate on the court, or have some real fancy style of play. Nothing like that.
What is unique about our teams is unity. I am not talking about all of the ladies on the team working together or being buddies. The unity I am talking about is best described by Romans 15: 5-6.
“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
Whether a Lady Defenders dives for a rogue ball, shoots a free throw, or simply calls out cheers from the bench she does it for the glory of God! I have heard people say that is important to the team and so on, but I haven’t spent much time watching the games. This morning I just casually walked in the gym, not expecting to learn anything. Just catch a glimpse of the game. But what I found instead was a group of women united together as a team, glorifying God! Way to go Lady Defenders!!!
