I’ve noticed that young athletes (10-12 years of age) are concerned about staying hydrated while they are competing. Boys need a bottle of water, or their favorite sports drink, after playing a couple of innings of baseball. Girls send Mom or Dad to the concession stand to get something to quench their thirst before halftime of their basketball game.
I don’t remember being that thirsty when I was a kid, but I guess it’s a good thing that today’s young athletes see the need to drink plenty of fluids when they exercise.
Let’s hope they stay spiritually thirsty too.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they will be filled.”—Matthew 5:6.
