Many coaches have enjoyed short-term success while ignoring spiritual commitment. However, a high percentage of coaches who had lengthy careers have been people of faith.
Faith has provided them with a compass to find their way through the pitfalls of coaching. Training only the mind and muscles for an athletic contest without preparing emotionally and spiritually is often not very effective. The heart sustains the mind and the muscles.
Those who attempt to achieve challenging goals operating solely on a physical and mental plane, with no spiritual depth, are analogous to a body functioning without a heart. If you truly are a follower of Jesus Christ, then you will imitate God’s wisdom.
Drawing us deeper into a life beyond our wildest dreams are the 6 lifestyle transformations found in Ephesians 5.
