Why You Should Thank God That Your Kids Are Mediocre Athletes

Thank God that your kids are such utterly unremarkable athletes that they don't have coaches recruiting them to be on the field instead of at church on Sunday mornings, and that you therefore aren't foolishly telling yourself "My kids will still love Jesus" when you habitually drive them past His house to be somewhere else as the worship service takes place.

... Treat the modest athletic gifts God has given your children the way you treat the modest amount of money he's given you: by looking at that sufficient yet unremarkable pile and thanking God that you have enough for food and shelter, enough to be healthy and at peace, but not so much that your heart would be corrupted and allow the cares and riches and pleasures of this life to choke your faith.
