When Duty Calls

Charlie Strong

University of Louisville head football coach Charlie Strong is displeased with his players after a recent loss to Pittsburgh. Strong said that his team was distracted by the release of a new video game—Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. He said that at least one player missed class after staying up all night to play the game. Other players seemed to be more focused on playing a video game than preparing for their next opponent. If they had won the game against Pitt, Louisville would have become bowl eligible. This, of course, caused coach Strong to be even more frustrated with his team’s lackluster preparation. After a frank discussion with his team Sunday night, the coach hopes that his team can regroup. “They got called to duty,” Strong said.

We should always remember that we are engaged in spiritual warfare, and the stakes are incredibly high. We can’t afford to be distracted from our duties. We must remain focused on the task at hand.

“We proclaim him…To this end I labor, struggling with all his energy, which so powerfully works in me.”—Colossians 1:28-29.

Duty calls.
