Love Thy Rival

Who:  You, Me, and Samaritan's Purse.

What:  We're going to raise $40,000 to build a women's and children's medical clinic.

Where:  In Petit Goave, Haiti.

When:  Construction has just begun. We're raising money until February 1, 2013

Why:  While working on my book, Love Thy Rival, a pastor asked if my devotion to sports assists me in proclaiming the gospel of salvation. It's a tough question, but one I think all Christian sports fans should ask.  Because if the answer is no - and for most of us I fear it usually is - we need to take a step back and figure out how it can.

I began to wonder how can we channel our devotion to sports in a way that would bring glory to God? Rivalries seemed like a natural place to start, since I'd spent the last year observing the most heated ones in sports.  Rival fans aren't supposed to like each other, and they certainly aren't supposed to work together.  But to be a counter cultural witness, I think that is exactly what we need to do.  We can still compete, because I know that is what we love to do, but if in the end God is glorified and the sick are healed, we are all winners.  

How:  Give what you can and ask others to give. And don't forget to put your favorite team in the comments, so we can keep up with which group of rival fans is outgiving the others.  

Who:  I've already told you.

What:  You're not even listening are you?
