“Oh, how I love Your law! It is my meditation all the day.”
As the head coach of the Green Bay Packers, Vince Lombardi would start his training camps by holding up a football and saying, “Gentlemen, this is a football.”
Then he would take the professional players through the basics of football. He treated them like blank slates, as though they’d never heard any of it before.
As Christians, we can lose sight of the basics as well. We may find ourselves losing ground instead of gaining ground as we fall back into old sins that we thought were a part of our past. And we can suffer defeat.
