Most athletes at some point in their life will be asked, “Why do you play the game?” The answer will reveal their priorities. If the answer is winning, the priority is winning. If the answer is relationships, the priority is relationships. If the answer is for the glory of God, the priority is God.
- Give your honest answer: Why do you play the game?
- List, in order, your priorities based on your answers.
- As a team, what is your goal in playing the game?
- Colossians 3:23 says, “Whatever you do, do it enthusiastically, as something done for the Lord and not for men.” What is the priority of the author of this verse?
- Matthew 6:33 it says: “But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things will be provided for you.” What is Jesus telling us that our first priority should be?

- What do you need to do to make sure God is the priority in your life?
- Make a list of what you would like your priorities to be.
- Have the team make a list of the team priorities.
