"Put me in, Coach!"


Isaiah 6:1-8

In the year that King Uzziah died, I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, high and lofty; and the hem of his robe filled the temple. Seraphs were in attendance above him; each had six wings: with two they covered their faces, and with two they covered their feet, and with two they flew. And one called to another and said: "Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of his glory." The pivots on the thresholds shook at the voices of those who called, and the house filled with smoke.

If you watch little kids playing basketball, you see a lot of different attitudes from the kids on the bench. Some of them look relieved to be there, glad for a bit of rest. Others seem anxious, wondering when they might get put in and if they are ready. And then there are the enthusiasts, the ones who seem unable to sit still on the bench, ready to spring to their toes, eagerly making eye contact until they just can't stand it, and finally they blurt out, "Put me in, coach!" They are dying to get in the game.
