Minimax (Matthew 24:36-51)

Good morning all,

The word of the day is "minimax."  Throughout the years I have had many mentors.  Many of them have been strictly through reading.  These are the men and women with whom I will never really ever have a chance to sit down, but I can learn a ton from the stuff that they write.  One of these gentlemen is John Wooden, the famous UCLA basketball coach.  He used to write down what he believed would be the score of each basketball game before the game even took place.  This is how well he knew his team, and his opponents.  His strategy was to maximize the effort of his players to withstand anything that would come up against his team.

“Therefore you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” ~Matt 24:44

My question is: what are you doing to maximize your potential in relationship to JC? With all of the stuff out there that can hinder your ability, it is good to know what are capable of.  Just like a sports team looks at all of the odds and possibilities to give themselves the best possibility of winning, so must we as Christians know both the good and the bad that encompasses our lives. And from there, make good decisions. My prayer is that you get your spiritual house in order and be ready for God to work in you life.

Praying for you,
