iWon.



me and my friend ivonnah had a bet during the NBA Finals game (much like my bet with prudychick. see her blog post here).

ivonnah was rootin' for the celtics and i was rootin' for the lakers (ofcourse). whoever won the bet would be able to write a guest blog post on the "loser's" blog. and since we ALL know what happened last week, i had the privilege of writing a guest post on her blog.

anywhoo, i decided that it would be apropos to write something about basketball since this was what the bet was all about. so here is my take on "6 life lesson from the NBA: what the church can learn from the lakers/celtics finals."

1. HISTORY CAN BE CHANGED. [isaiah 66:8]
these 2 teams have met 12 times in the NBA finals and the celtics have won 9 times against the lakers. history and stats showed favor towards the Celtics winning this series. after the embarrassing loss in 08... the lakers were called "weak and soft". it took this team being humiliated for them to work hard & grow in their "weakness", as well as grow in their strength. and with determination, they were able to change stats and history.

the church has been called "useless" in this day and age. in fact, christians are mostly humiliated in media coverages, calling our stand for purity and life "weak and soft." our teachings have been irrelevant and our lifestyles are a joke because, instead of being an example, we have become hypocritical, hypercritical, and judgmental. we need to study how and where and what we've been doing wrong and right as a body of Christ and see to it that we implement the changes that are needed to be made in order for us to win our family/friends/school/workplace/city/nation back for God.
