Who Can You Trust

This past week 2 premiership football managers have lost their jobs – Roberto Di Matteo at Chelsea and Mark Hughes at QPR.  In come the new guys – 2 managers who have been repeatedly sacked for ‘failure’ at other clubs.

Am I alone in thinking that being a manager of a football club is the only job in the world where you can be a ’failure’, leave with a very handsome pay off and then be rewarded by being given another high profile, high paid job?  Bizarre! I might even give it a go myself.

For many people football is a religion; for them there is nothing else.  The managers/players are gods, the grounds are the cathedrals/ worship centres, the fanzines are their Bibles and the fans are the faithful worshippers who enjoy regular fellowship together.  The true devotees talk about football endlessly, discuss it, chew over it, plan for it, cry over it and rejoice over it.  When it goes well it’s great, but when it’s bad, it’s awful.  Relationships have been made and broken over it.  Who would have it?

So who can you trust?  How about this thought “Some trust in chariots (teams) and some trust in horses (players) but we will trust in the name of the Lord” (Psalm 20 v7).  There is no one better to put your trust in.  Unlike football, he will never disappoint.
