So how do Christian parents block out or not get distracted by that worldly perspective is, it's difficult to do, or for athletes as well because all the players and their team are playing for different reasons.

How does an athlete or parent make sure that whatever they do, do your work heartily for the Lord and are playing for the audience of one, Jesus Christ. How do you do that when everything around you is telling you something differently. Christian parent cannot do that without really becoming mature in Christ. Through intense study of God's word can be known.

If you and I or anyone of us out there who are Christians are not passionately fervently studying, knowing and meditating on God's word on a regular basis as if we were eating food and that was our nutrition. We are never going to get it working to be overcome by the idolatry. This will allow, Christians.

I'm talking about. I'm not talking about non-Christians right now I'm talking about believers who are continually forfeiting eternal rewards.

Because the there choosing a piece of this earth to come and hunker down on and to gain their own glory and then wanting to put in a press a stamp of God's approval on top as if God endorses that in the Lord just does not endorse that the Bible says in James 188 double minded man is unstable in all his ways you can change both kingdoms at the same time. Jesus made it really clear that you must choose one kingdom or the other.

And if you've already joined the kingdom through Christ then really if you are are if you're really going to maximize your opportunities and times you have a Christ centered in every room, so to David. I would say that the parent needs to be studying the word of God and reminding their children as it says in Deuteronomy chapter 6 while they rise up Wally while they go to bed as their walking and is there sitting you reminding them of the principles of how God released his people from Egypt out of slavery and into the new life in the promise land and I think today that is also the gospel message and it's gonna be activated even in the sports world.
