Can Sports Help My Child Grow in Christlikeness?
I spent much of my childhood playing sports. I enjoyed the competition, comradery and challenge that came with playing. Of all the sports I played, baseball occupied most of my time as I played competitively from the age of 10 to my university days. But the questions I ask myself looking back are: Did I waste my time doing this when I could have been learning more about the Bible? Should I let my kids play as much as I did? Are there any lasting benefits to playing aside from exercise? Should we spend less time at school playing sports and more time studying?
I had these types of questions floating around in the back of my head awhile ago when I ran into an article in the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary newspaper by Randy Stinson titled 5 Ways Sports Can Disciple Your Child.
