February 8, 2022 - Look at Me

Selfishness is replacing service. Evil is being called good, and good is being called evil. The answer to all of these challenges is the same as it has always been. We have a Savior, and He has taught us what we should do.

President Dallin H. Oaks, BYU Pathway Devotional, February 8, 2022

I watch sports... a lot. And it's amazing how, more and more, players do things that say "look at me". I remember thinking "just play the game". I'm not accusing anyone of being selfish, afterall, I'm not one of those athletes. I just watch the game. But I do see a trend.

Point is, gone are the days when, as a player did something amazing, or even ordinary for that matter, they just put their head down and went back to work. Now it's all about show, it's all about individual accomplishments (even though it's a team sport), it's all about self, it's all about being better than the next guy (or gal).

Granted, that's what competing is. But what I'm saying is you can still do an amazing job on the field, on the court, on the sand, etc., when you quietly do your job to help your team. You don't have to be loud, arrogant, boisterous, etc.
