Want to Carry the Ball?
The coach said to the quarterback, "Give the ball to George." But instead he gave it to John, and there was no gain.
Demanded the coach, "Why didn't you give the ball to George?"
"Sir," replied the quarterback, "George said he did not want the ball."
There was a player on our Lord's side named Demas. Like George, he did not want to carry the ball. He valued comfort above character, ease above effort, gold above God, self-indulgence above self-control.
Of him Paul wrote, "Demas has forsaken me, having loved the present world."
Are you willing to carry the ball for the Lord?
