A New Trend
How many times have you seen the ol' point-to-the-sky-to-thank-God-for-my-goal/homerun/basket in sports?
Or how many times have you seen a player make the sign of the cross endless times before he starts a game, begging God to help him do well?
I have to admit, as much as I love sports, I'm always a bit disappointed when I see these gestures.
Don't get me wrong, I think its great that these athletes are thinking about God, and hopefully thanking Him for their talents.
But I wonder if those same people make the sign of the cross as they walk past homeless people.
Or point to the sky every time they see God working one of His many miracles here on Earth.
You know, for things that really matter.
I know I don't.
But I might from now on.
