I admit I was disappointed with the outcome of last night's College Football National Championship game. Alabama had a great season,and deserve a big pat on the back... but the real winner in the game last night was The Gospel. You don't even have to be a sports fan to appreciate Texas Longhorns quarterback Colt McCoy! As a sports fan, I was heartbroken to see Colt get knocked out of the biggest game of his college career, but the lesson that we can all learn from how he handled it was a lesson that will stick with me far longer than a National Championship.
Colt showed what it means to love God and let your light so shine before men. I am sure that Colt would have glorified God in his post game speech, if Texas would have won, but I am sure that it wouldn't have had the impact that his parting words did last night. His words, his heart, his display of sportsmanship brought me to tears and inspired me. I hope that you'll take the time to watch this video, and then to pass it on!
