The Most Important Win
John Davis, President | Blog

Our boys’ varsity basketball team has been enjoying a phenomenal season. Going into our game with Lake Country Lutheran on Tuesday night, we had a record of 21-1 with just two games left on our schedule. We have every reason to expect that the team will go deep in the state tournament. Does this meet our standard for success?

We don’t want to over-spiritualize things, but we also don’t want to ignore the bigger issues that are taking place on our sports teams at Heritage. Jesus asked the question, “…what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?” (Mark 8:36) We might ask the question, “What good is it if we go undefeated, win our conference, and capture the state championship, yet fail to help our athletes become the young men and women God created them to be?”
