Michael Jordan, perhaps the greatest basketball player to ever play the game, returned to his alma mater, the University of North Carolina, to watch a ball game. Arriving at the gymnasium with a friend, they noticed that the parking lot was full. The friend suggested that Jordan park his car in an empty spot reserved for those with handicaps. Jordan refused to do so, and said, "Oh no, I couldn't do that. If Coach Smith (the UNC basketball coach) ever knew I parked in a handicapped parking zone, I wouldn't be able to face him." It's a good thing that no matter what position one reaches in life, there is someone we know, that the very thought of facing them, manages our behavior. Think about who that person is in your life. Now ask yourself, what choice would I make if I knew that person would find out!
Ultimately there should always be the thought of striving to please our Father in heaven. The apostle Paul's desire for Christians is that they "walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, to please Him in all respects...(Colossians 1:10). Remembering that "there is no creature hidden from His sight, but all things are open and laid bare to the eyes of Him with whom we have to do" (Hebrews 4:13). One day we shall all stand before our Creator. Our choices should reflect that reality. Are you ready to face Him? Come and worship with us. Come and learn of His way for your life!
