I Conquer Evil When I Watch Basketball | Jake Braithwaite, SJ
Imagine my shock then, to find myself enjoying the game! Lebron and his teammates were skilled ballplayers, exciting to watch and fast on their feet. Two quarters in, my fears had lifted. Unlike fifteen years prior, this basketball arena was the site of my ultimate, God-given purpose. God had not created me to be a basketball player, but He had created me to love and support my student, Lebron.
Maybe where you are right now is not where you want to be. Or, maybe you are exactly where you need to be, to be of the greatest help to someone else.
This also kind of reminds me of the story in Mitch Albiom's book, Five People You Meet In Heaven.
