Stay With the Ball

There’s a saying in Ghanaian football: “The one with the ball is the one that’s attacked.” If you’re productively engaged in a worthy cause, prepare to be opposed and tripped. Adversaries will criticize, vilify, and try to pull down. But be undeterred. Even if you fumble, and are jeered and taunted, get up and keep moving! Remain focused on THE GOAL. Through our trials, struggles, and failures, Satan seeks our downfall and ruin. But through Christ, God always strengthens and renews. “We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed” (2 Corinthians 4:8, 9). Attacked? Stay with the ball and you’ll triumph!—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
