Cricket is such a civilised sport. There's plenty to appreciate in the game and it takes good athletes to compete at the high levels. Australian Cricket has dominated the sport for a while. The South Africans, however, have given them a run for their money in the Boxing Day test matches.
There are rules that honour both sides and courtesies that are a part of the game that make it proper. I'm beginning to enjoy it.
Cricket, however, does not imitate life. Life is somewhat messy and unprdictable. Often we don't see so much honour between people. Into this arena, God interjects order and honour and an approach that is meaningful, directed and enjoyable. His love is seen in Jesus who lives for us to live.
1 John 3:4 (MSG)
4 All who indulge in a sinful life are dangerously lawless, for sin is a major disruption of God's order.
