A good game plan
Once, in the heat of the last minutes of a close NBA playoff game, Boston Celtics coach K.C. Jones looked into the faces of his team during a timeout. According to those in the huddle, he looked at no. 33, Larry Bird, nodded and said, “Give him the ball and get out of the way.” They did, he did, and the Celtics won.
What a fine story. What a good lesson for those of us who follow Jesus. As we face the challenges of life, the best thing we can do is “give him the ball and get out of the way.” Surrender our life to him and “let go and let God.”
