The Coach - 15th Sunday of Ordinary Time (C)


My brothers and sisters, the most worthwhile things in life are often the ones that are not easy, especially for tasks that are difficult, we need our coaches. We don’t like them in the moment they are pushing us to our limits, but we know in the back of our minds that they have our growth in mind. Growth often requires sacrifice just as love requires sacrifice. I ran all of those miles in high school as a soccer player for my coach because I knew it would make me a better athlete somehow, even if I didn’t see it at the time. When I was in seminary, I prayed even when it was hard to pray because my spiritual director told me that you spend time with what and who you love. So pray hard.In your life, have you surrounded yourself with people who challenge you to become the best version of yourself? Do you challenge others to be their best… encourage their growth out of love?
