Daily Thought

A coach and a running back. They were together at the University of Southern California. They won 34 consecutive games, two National Championships, and a Heisman Trophy. But that is not their legacy. They cheated.

“Woe to him who builds his realm by unjust gain
to set his nest on!” ~Habakkuk 2:9

On June 10, 2010, the NCAA announced major sanctions against the Trojans. Stripped of all victories in games featuring the running back, including a national championship. All titles won must be vacated. And take down the banners and trophies. The Heisman, too.

This now is their legacy.

“The stones of the wall will cry out,
and the beams of the woodwork will echo it.” ~Habakkuk 2:11

Daily Prayer

My God, Yours is the Name above all names. There is authority in Your Name, and in Your Name I find life. Your Name is holy and good, righteous and powerful.

As a follower of Your Son, Jesus Christ, I wear Your Name. May the life I live not empty Your Name of glory, may I never take Your Name in vain or make light of it.  In all I do, may He receive glory and praise.

Amen
