A devotional by Reverend Dr. Kevin Schwamb
It’s been described as mentally challenging by those who play it, yet most players do not break a sweat while competing. It’s a favorite among investors like Bill Gates and Warren Buffet even though it is not recognized as an official sport by everyone. But in England, that may all be about to change as a judge is scheduled to rule on whether the card game Bridge will be recognized as an official sport in the United Kingdom. Enthusiasts of the game are hoping for a favorable verdict which, they claim, will give them the respect they deserve.
Although, the verdict on the game of Bridge is still out, there is no doubt that true Christian discipleship is more than a game. Being a follower of Christ is a life long journey which requires spiritual discipline and commitment. Daily we should be asking ourselves, “Am I playing at being a Christian or am I passionate about following Jesus?”
