Sheltered Athletes

We just witnessed football players giving God the glory. We heard that winning the Super Bowl isn’t as important as knowing God.

Next up: the Olympics. Meet some athletes who desire God more than a gold medal:

 

Simidele Adeagbo, skeleton (Nigeria)
“Faith is most important because faith made this possible.”

Nicole Hensley, ice hockey (USA)
“The result is not necessarily the most important thing. It is more important to be on the ice and enjoy the chance to play when God has given me such a passion and ability in this game.”

Gim Sohui, Alpine skiing (South Korea)
Gim hopes “to spread the Gospel through sports.”

Be their safe shelter, Lord. And use them to lead others to that shelter.

Psalm 18:2 (CEV)
You are my mighty rock, my fortress, my protector, the rock where I am safe, my shield, my powerful weapon, and my place of shelter.
