A football game was being played in Badger Stadium in 1982 in Madison Wisconsin with more than 60,000 fans in attendance. The home team was losing. But out of the blue during time outs, when play was a stop the fans would jump up and roar with excitement. Why? Finally the players and coaches realized that 70 miles down the road the Milwaukee Brewers were beating the Saint Louis Cardinals in game three of the 1982 World Series. Many of the fans had walkmans in their ears and were listening to the game over the radio. Their team on the field was loosing but they were turned into something better down the road. The Christian life is like that for us today. Our circumstances are bad at times but we must be tuned into something better down the road. We must place our hopes not in this world but in heaven.
