The Olympics are a big deal around our house. It became so when my, then 3 year old daughter, fell in love with watching the athletes on television. She didn't sit there all day watching it, but she want it to be on when the athletes were competing.
So last night, we watched. I love watching athletes compete. There is so much similarity between athletics and being a follower of Jesus. I guess the same reasons that American are getting so fat are pretty similar to the same reasons there are so many spiritually fat Americans. I guess you have to actually go to a gym in order to get fit; much the same way you have to use the spiritual disciplines and practices to become holy.
Anyway; here is the link to the Olympics. NBCOlympics.com - Home. NBC is offering more online video coverage than ever before.
