This past Sunday I was speaking at New Covenant Church in Longview, Texas. For you who are not familiar with Texas, Longview is a town 120 miles east of Dallas. The people there are avid Dallas Mavericks fans. So a couple of years when the San Antonio Spurs beat the Mavericks in the playoffs, being from San Antonio I decided to preach there in a Spurs T-shirt. It wasn't a very nice thing to do, but I did it anyway. They laughed but somehow I knew it was the kind of a laugh that said, "we will repay - someday." This past Sunday was that day. After being introduced I moved toward the podium and as I did I heard the crowd begin to laugh. When I looked on the huge overhead screen this is what I saw. Payback time it was. We all had a good laugh.
