Now, I’m the type of person that works hard, or at least I work hard by my own estimation. Sure, I put everything that I can into my work, but I put just as much if not more into when I spend time with my family.
Weekends are usually filled with something to do with sports, either watching or participating. Recently, my wife got me this beautiful projector for Christmas. We have a wall in our home that if you move a couch to the other side of the room, you have an instant movie theater. I think it’s about a fifteen foot screen. It’s beautiful.
Anyway, we use this massive screen to watch sports because we can invite as many friends and family over. I watched the NFC Championship game between the 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles this past Sunday and I have to say it was an impressive display by the Eagles.
Added to that, you have some good folks on both of the teams that played. Sure, the NFL gets a bad rap by a couple of lunkheads here and there, but there are a lot of good folks that are just trying to use their skills to do good things. Like the quarterback for the Eagles as an example…
The quarterback who guided the Philadelphia Eagles to an NFC title and an appearance in the Super Bowl says he has been inspired by a Bible verse that includes the words of Jesus.
Jalen Hurts passed for 121 yards and rushed for 39 yards and one touchdown Sunday in Philadelphia’s 31-7 victory over San Francisco in the NFC Championship, advancing the Eagles to Super Bowl 57 against the Kansas City Chiefs. It will be played on Feb. 12.
Hurts, who began his college career at Alabama before transferring to Oklahoma, quoted Scripture in a postgame news conference.
“I went through a lot of stuff in college and it kind of stuck with me – John 13:7. ‘You may not know now, but later you will understand.'”
Hurts called it “my favorite verse.”
It wasn’t the first time Hurts has quoted the passage. In his final season at Alabama, he posted it on Twitter, writing, “Jesus replied, ‘You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand’ – John 13:7. Just let God work his magic.”
