    It sounds simple, but the first thing one must learn in order to play football is where the goal post is – the right goal post, that is!
    Occasionally we hear of a dazed player running in the wrong direction and scoring points for the other team.
    In real life, it is alarmingly easy to become confused about our right goal. The Bible says that we are not to love the world or the things in the world. The world is not our goal. The chief aim and goal for human beings, made in the image of God, is heaven. Our purpose on earth is to live godly lives. The Lord say, “Be ye holy for I am holy” – 1 Peter 1:16.
    While football is just a game, life is much, much more. But football and life have this in common – the direction you are headed in makes all the difference.
    Are you headed toward that heavenly goal? Are you sure?
