Matthew 9: 32 "Whoever acknowledges me before men, I will also acknowledge him before my Father in heaven. But whoever disowns me before men, I will disown him before my Father in heaven.”
Hockey Chat: On the business side of hockey, it’s all personal. Although the good players create a fun game to watch, many teams (all that I know of) spend time with the community as well. In turn the community spends money on tickets and merchandise which in turn goes back into the players salaries. Both the players and fans appreciate each other and enjoy the relationship. If the players were rude and disowned the fans then the fans would fall away and not support the team.
Life Lesson: Jesus gave us the opportunity to choose. He made his best effort and sacrifice. He has already given us reason to believe and love. With accepting him as our Lord and Savior, he says we are his. He will stand by us, redeeming us of our sins, giving us everlasting life. Then there are those who want nothing to do with him and on that Day of Judgment, they will get their wish.
