WE'RE ASKING MEN IN SPORTS:
How can we, as females in sports, better come alongside you in your role that brings glory to God and works for the good of His kingdom on earth?
From a Collegiate Male Athlete: Part One
As a male Christian athlete I have grown to see the dying need for a change of our view of women. Our culture today screams sex from every corner on and off campus. In my experiences, it is the male athletes who have the worst view of women. When males live life together in constant interaction such as male locker rooms, the talk about women is quite derogatory. The worldly view of women in these atmospheres can be very contagious for young Christian athletes who have to deal with the temptation of wanting to fit in. They also have to continue to renew their minds of what women are in Gods eyes. I believe women can better come alongside men for the glory of God and work of His kingdom on earth by prayer, modesty, and intentionality.
This is some background to a male athlete's thoughts and observations behind how women can better come alongside men, before hitting on the actual "how". He sees the brokenness between men and women. He sees where things go wrong on the man's end. He also sees how women don't always help. It's a team effort we're in to fight for God's glory to be shown and known through our lives and relationships.
While we as women cannot control what happens in the male locker room or everything that is said about us among a group of guys, we can do our part.
In the following newsletters we will hear more about how with prayer, modesty, and intentionality.
