Of These, Who Are You…??


Coaches will coach,
Give instructions,
Teach the rules,
Prepare for the game…

Mentors will mentor,
Guide the way,
Encourage right effort,
Inspire some actions….

Commentators will comment,
With all comment types,
Opinions they’ll have,
There’ll always have something to say…

Speculators will speculate,
On where abilities, potential and all,
May lead,
By what they see, feel and think,
They’ll judge…

Spectators will…yes, spectate,
They’ll watch the game,
They’ll cheer and jeer…
As they deem right…

Players will play,
Giving their best in the game,
The result of much effort…
After lots of coaching and mentoring,
They can only look at winning…

Players, coaches and mentors,
Are in this together,
Participating in some way,
To the game play,
It’s a win,
Even without a medal,
Being in the game,
Is already a win…

Commentators, Speculators, and Spectators,
So much talk…little do…
Watching from a distant…

Coach, Mentor, Commentator, Speculator, Spectator…
Who do you want to be??

    Thanks for these thoughts! First, I want to be a player, then a mentor and at last a coach, or second coach and last a mentor. Without doing anything I become automatically commentator, speculator and spectator. But that is not to which we are called!
    Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize? So run, that ye may obtain. 1 Cor. 9:24
    I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Phil. 3:14
