But if men are bound in chains, held fast by cords of affliction, he (God) tells them what they have done— that they have sinned arrogantly. He makes them listen to correction and commands them to repent of their evil.
Hockey Chat: I watched a Chicago Wolves game on a Friday night, and saw a team in disarray. They did not play like the first place team they were. Instead they were walked on through the entire game, giving a whopping 50 shots to Peoria and 7 of those went in. After the game, their goalie who was one of the team leaders, Fred Brathwaite, gave the guys an earful on what went wrong. He told them what they needed to hear. The very next night they turned the tables and put up 47 shots and got 8 goals against Rockford. Back to the kind of hockey those guys were known for.
Life Lesson: There are times in life where are heads are just not in the game and we blow it. God has his ways of correcting us to help us be the great men we are. It may even be through the words of others in your life that he speaks to us. There are days we lose sight of our potential but God gets us back on track to a winning life. We just need to listen and apply, and then we enjoy the success of a life with Christ.
