In this “politically correct” society, it seems senseless to separate the women from the men when it comes to sports. At least when it comes to competing against and amongst themselves. The girls want to win just as much as the guys, right? I mean there’s no discrimination between the ladies and the gentlemen when it comes to wanting to win, right?
To be sure, God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve. So Adam was made in the likeness of God, and Eve, taken from man’s side, has the same attributes and elements and characteristics and qualities that men do, including the will to win. Even though we are built and wired differently, we are equal in the sight of God.
From a sports perspective, the argument for equality should be over and done with. We celebrate women AND men. This is a blog about God and sports, right?
And the United States Women’s Soccer Team proved this time honored truth yet again in defeating favored Germany in the semi-finals of the FIFA World Cup in Canada. Even though I did not watch, since I’m a sports fan, I care that they won. And I will be watching the title match between the US and Japan. You go girls!
So it’s hats off and three cheers and hip, hip hooray to the ladies who look like they may live to win another World Cup Final. Let’s cheer them on, and hope and pray that their play (and hopefully their win) will be another example of resilience and brilliance and spunk and spirit for all of us to go by.
