My all-time favorite sports team is the Denver Broncos. Some great names have played for them; John Elway with the many fourth quarter comebacks, Terrell Davis being drafted as a nobody and becoming one of the greatest running backs of all time, Ed Mccaffrey with stickiest hands and most awesome catches that were shook off with a neck twist after every one of them, Champ Bailey who is one of the most feared corner backs in history, the list goes on. They have played in five Super Bowls, winning two back to back. They are amongst the greatest teams in the NFL.
The greatness of the Broncos is what brought me to them, but what made me a true fan has nothing to do with their on-field talent. I am a Bronco fan because of who they are off the field. Many of them are very involved in charities. It doesn’t take long for a new player on the team to start a local charity. And if a player shows tendencies to get into trouble on or off the field, the team will generally let them go.
To be a Denver Bronco it is all about class. If you are a class act, you will have a long career with one of the classiest teams in all of sports. If you show a bad attitude or have an enlarged cranium, the Broncos will get rid of you for someone who is more deserving of that uniform.
It is extremely important to the Broncos that players wear their name in an honorable way. This is the same for God. When we claim to be Christians it is our job to bring honor to the name of God. If we act without class under the name of God, what example are we giving to the world?
Our actions should inform the world that we are children of God. If we claim to be Christians but do not back it up by the way we act, we are doing an injustice to the name of God. Hallowed means to honor as holy, so this section means to bring holiness to the name of God. Let’s make a conscience effort to bring holiness to the name of God every day.
