The NCAA has made a special exception to allow the Mount St. Joseph’s women’s basketball team to move its season opener up to November 2. The reason for this change is to give Lauren Hill a chance to play in that game.
Lauren was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor about a year ago, and doctors estimated that she had about a year to live. The disease has affected her ability to move, but she, along with her coaches and teammates, want her to have the chance to play in at least one college game this season.
You have to admire this young lady’s determination to be the best she can be for as long as she can.
It should make us examine our own resolve to give our best for Jesus.
“But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”—Matthew 6:33.
