Go Super to Listen Go Super!

David Beckham has been a soccer star for so long, it’s hard to imagine him trying out for his first team. But everyone has to start somewhere, and if you want to prove yourself, you have to try out.

Sports teams, plays, and bands all require you to try out for a position or role. You have to demonstrate your talent and show that you are a good fit. When you try out, you do a small performance, showing off your best work.

Beckham now has children who are old enough to try out for soccer teams just like he did when he was little. He says there is a lot of pressure on his kids to do well at team tryouts. People expect them to play just like their dad, even though they are still just kids. Maybe it would be better if they tried out for swimming or basketball instead.

What have you tried out for in the past? Did you make it?

“I would love to be in my school’s play, but I’m too nervous to try out.”

“Will you try out for the basketball team with me?”

“My brother and I both tried out for the debate team, but only I earned a position.”

I’m an engineer, a pastor and a kung-fu teacher. In all cases was in dependence of God’s grace. Some people like to say: God doesn’t choose the prepared but prepare the ones He chooses. But I prefer to say that God honors our efforts.


“No one serving in the military gets mixed up in civilian matters, for his aim is to please his commanding officer. Moreover, no one who is an athlete wins a prize unless he competes according to the rules. Furthermore, it is the hard working farmer who should have the first share of the crops. Think about what I am saying. The Lord will help you to understand all these things” (2 Tim 2:4-7).


May God bless you all.
