Honoring God through Sports

David Platt uncovers the Scriptural truth about how to use sports to honor God.

“How do we watch and play sports to the glory of God?” David asks. “…Particularly in a culture that idolizes sports in so many ways?”

Why is it that millions gather each week to praise and worship athletes and sporting events? There is a sense of community and celebration when a group of people circle up to be a part of something greater than themselves. We all long for that “something greater,” but are sports the greatest “something greater?”

In this clip, David challenges the idea that playing or watching sports threatens to be our main religion. What religion do you participate in with your whole heart? 

“So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.” – 1 Corinthians 10:31
