Deciding and choosing and picking and reaching a conclusion about a person are not easy tasks. For those of us who actually LIKE people, getting to know someone is actually an enjoyable experience. One of my absolute favorite things to do is talk to strangers. That’s one of the reasons I love to hire, because I get to meet and evaluate talent by conducting dozens of interviews each year. In selecting talent, it’s necessary to evaluate resumes and character and presence. It’s not easy.
Choosing someone means that you elected (a tricky theological term) to select them above and before and instead of others. Along this line, Christianity is a superior belief system to all others because God actually chooses us, not the other way around. And God chose us, knowing our faults and flaws and faux pas before we even committed them! How about that for taking a chance on a pick! And God the Father still wants us, despite our limits and limitations and liabilities. He still drafted us. He actually wants to be our friend in additional to being our deliverer and, through Jesus Christ, our personal Savior.
So if you don’t know God for yourself, just know that He chose you, he picked you and he wants you to “play” on His team. How about that for a Draft night tie in?
So who’s the best player in the 2018 Draft? DeAndre Ayton? Marvin Bagley? Luka Doncic? y Mo Bamba? Who’s got the most “potential?” Pick ‘em!
Only time will tell.
