Football Fever!

Do we focus more on football than on the things of God?

How cute the comic is! Our church actually has a team shirt Sunday. Of course, I wear Penn State. Remember when we wore hats to church, or am I dating myself?

Cute, Sally!!!! I think we do --as a society--pay more attention to sports than we do God... Just think of the money those sports figures make and how we are paying for all of that. The cartoon may be funny--but someone makes a good point!!!

Good post! Even though many of us would not want to admit it, any form of entertainment that takes our eyes off God, is an idol! Thanks for sharing.

All the best, Lana

We don't have that "problem " over here, so I wouldn't know ;-)
But it's important to have fun and LIVE.. So I am sure God would see through his fingers on this one!! HE is good you know!

Perfect timing Sally, hopefully your cartoon will be a good reminder as well as putting a smile on everyone's face.

Have a blessed Sunday,
Kathi :)

Good question Sally. I should ask my dh that question. However, he always goes to church with me and gladly. Football in our family is BIG, that is for sure. Loved your cartoon.

Have a wonderful Sunday.

God Bless,

Sally that is a good one! LOL! I have seen people sit in the back of the church with those tiny TV's....

Musings of A Minister said...

We probably do. You know me. My plea is for balance. However, I have sense enough to know that when it comes to the world, football, and the things of God--we are never going to get balance. (Come to think about, there is no probably about it. We do indeed, give more attention to football than to the things of God)

How great it would be if people were as enthusiastic about God and His kingdom as they are about sports.
Cute cartoon.

Hi Sally, your post hit it.
It is my first winter here in US, and I have observed this football season, too, it made my husband rush going bak home from church. Not all Sundays though. But I didn't realized it is also the Pastor's struggle to keep his congregation just because of that football. :(

Oh, by the way, I am here in Michigan and we will be moving to Naples, Florida soon. I am so excited about it. :)
May you have a blessed Sunday, Sally.

Shimmy Mom said...

So true. Thanks for the laugh Sally.
Happy Sunday.

I'm so thankful none of my guys are into football! I even kind of hate to hear men at church Sunday night talking about the games they watched that afternoon. I've nothing against the game or how they spend their time, but...I don't know, I just don't want to hear it at church.

Cottage Rose said...

Hey Sally; How cute is that cartoon. lol just love, and during football season some out there do kind of put football first. Me I don't care for the game myself... oh dear do I hear some Booooo's sorry.... lol

Sally...what a cute cartoon and your post was very fitting for today!

I'm not a football fan but I get into the excitement of others for a big game.

Very nice post! :-)


Dixie said...

Sally, isn't it unfortunate that the cartoon is so true. So many people view going to church as an obligation or a chore... when in reality.. it is a privilege.

You're right.. I don't allow comments on my "So, God are you listening" blog due to some of the types of comments made on a previous prayer blog I managed. I keep it pure, without comment... but you are always welcome to post your thoughts on my French Lique blog...

have a blessed week. Dixie

The Muse said...

:) LOL ah this may be well too true!

here is my link for Monday :)

The Quintessential Magpie said...

Sally, that is a great question. I think the sad truth is that some people do.

You got it Sally. Thanks for the support.

See you tonight

Blondie's Journal said...

Hi Sally! I hope you are still looking at your comments for Sunday.

I want to thank you for reading my last post & want to ask you to revisit the comment section as I have left a note. Thanks!


Yellow Rose Arbor said...

Hi Sally,
I'm sorry I'm posting late to your Blue Monday, and that I cheated and used the same S&T post! I'll do better next week! I did try to do it late last night, but you didn't have the Mr. linky up yet. I have a weekly Monday morning Faith Sharing meeting at 9 a.m. and don't turn on the puter until afternoon, or night, so I may always be late with my posts. If you prefer I not do it this way, please let me know.
