St. John’s First Epistle tells us, “God is love and all who abide in love, abide in God.” Today let us make Love the most important value of our team. Help us to truly care for each other in order to be the best team we can be. Help us to love each other in good times and most especially in challenging times. Love is patient and kind, it is not jealous or boastful. Help us to make love the foundation of our team’s every practice and every game. Help us to love one another as you Lord love us perfectly and unconditionally.
