Bones of the Church The “body” of a church has four kinds of bones:
1. The WISHbones are those folks who spend all their time wishing someone else would do all the work.
2. The JAWbones are those who do all the talking and very little else.
3. The KNUCKLEbones are those who knock everything anyone else tries to do.
4. The BACKbones are those who get under the load and get the work done.
What kind of bone are you?
Trust in God University of Oklahoma quarterback Sam Bradford won the coveted Heisman Trophy in 2008. That season, the 6'5" team leader threw 50 touchdown passes, with only eight interceptions in 483 attempts. The Sooners had a 12-2 record that year.
Accolades aside, Bradford quickly but humbly acknowledges Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. Upon receiving the Heisman, Bradford said, “I feel like that’s another blessing God gave me.”
Bradford, a member of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes, exercises compassion and is known for his integrity. Before every game, he reportedly reads the account of David and Goliath.
