Being in the Houston, Texas area, I can emphatically state that the city is alive with Super Bowl fever! And after reading the predictions from the professionals, I deem it will be a great game to watch. Even if my team is not playing.
I predict tonight they will have the NFL Honors Award Program and that Greg Olsen will win the Walter Payton Man of the Year award. It is an award given to an NFL player based on their humanitarian work within the community they live.
“When someone has been given much, much will be required in return; and when someone has been entrusted with much, even more will be required.” Luke 12:48
I also predict that the Falcons will beat the Patriots 31 – 27. Gotta pull for the southern team.
But the biggest award should go to the fans. Because it is you who actually support these teams with your attendance to the games, and the products you buy. And in America, we can not have just a simple sporting event. You the fans, have found a way to turn it into a charitable day too!
Super Bowl party attendees will donate food and other items, which will be given to their local food banks and shelters. Boy Scouts will pick up bags of food left by front doors in local neighborhoods, which benefit the local food bank. The day once known as Super Bowl has begun to be recognized as Souper Bowl!
To me that states volumes of who we are as a country. Because we are a compassionate country. And when Super Bowl day is over and a winner declared, Americans will find another avenue to assist their fellow-man until next year. This is what we do and this is who we are…Americans.
God Bless You!
God Bless America!
