This is a devotional book intended to help you a s an athlete, or one involved in
sport, to honour God through athletics. Concrete examples from athletics provide
the context for e ach devotional. The reading then points you to Scripture and
challenges you to execute the theme of the devotional. You are encouraged to take
time to do some “extra shooting practice;” studying the extra scripture passages that
speak to the topic of the devotional. There is a lot of Scripture quoted, but to cite
from the Bible, God says his words “will not return to me empty, but will
accomplish what I de sire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55:11).
