As we embark on another season of American football, it's worthwhile to ask ourselves as men what it is we show emotion for, what it is we are willing to recruit to, gather for, and get passionate about. I suspect a good many of us will spend the next few months exerting much energy on hours of tailgating, passionate about a touchdown but despondent to our wives. A good many of us will cheer for a win, as we look over our children and grandchildren's heads toward the television. A good many of us will expend countless breaths on pleading for the referees to get the call right, but only a passing thought on pleading with God for more virtue and holiness. May this fall be the season when we decide to know Scripture, our families, and our neighbor better than we know the landscape of college or professional football.
