I don’t know if he meant to, but Lebron James provided true insight with his post game comments after failing to win the NBA Championship. When asked if it bothered him that so many people wanted him to fail he replied:
“Absolutely not,” James said. “Because at the end of the day, all the people that was rooting on me to fail, at the end of the day they have to wake up tomorrow and have the same life that they had before they woke up today. They have the same personal problems they had today. I’m going to continue to live the way I want to live . . . They can get a few days or a few months on being happy about not only myself but the Miami Heat not accomplishing their goal, but they have to get back to the real world at some point.”
No matter what we turn to to derive some happiness, some fulfillment ,or some diversion from the grind of just being alive, eventually it’s over and we are left with “the real world”. Preach it Lebron.
Check out what Jesus has to say: “Anyone who drinks this water will soon become thirsty again. But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again. It becomes a fresh, bubbling spring within them, giving them eternal life.”
“Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
To we who live in a country where we have any form of diversion or amusement you could dream of, Jesus invites us to come and drink from reality- Himself.
