I have a case of World Cup Fever going on right now. So I wondered, if the game of soccer was mentioned in the great text. So, I went to The Google to see what it said and found some interesting stuff.
First, a list of bible verses about soccer.
But in the end, I still come back to one of my favorite verses when the mix of athletics and spirituality are combined.
25 Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable. 26 So I do not run aimlessly; I do not box as one beating the air. 27 But I discipline my body and keep it under control,[a] lest after preaching to others I myself should be disqualified. 1 Corinthians 9:25-27 English Standard Version (ESV)
Enjoy the World Cup, but stay focused on the imperishable prize!
