Contrary to popular belief, there are three types of sports, not just two. Contact Sports (basketball, soccer, etc), Non-contact sports (tennis, golf, running, swimming, etc) and then there is Collision Sports where colliding with others is a part of the sport (football, rugby, boxing, etc). Unfortunately, many people are going through life like it is a non-contact sport, hoping that no one runs into them and if they do, they expect them to be given a penalty. Some are more in tune with reality and realize that life is messy and requires some contact. Once we realize that we are in a fight, not against others, but against evil, then we actually have a chance to win.
Lord, help me to be assertive and not such a passive doer of life.
