Lessons from the World Cup part 1

With the beautiful game ongoing in South Africa we are going to have several short (half-time sized?) articles looking what spiritual lessons we can learn from the World Cup. Because football is good, and God is awesome, so anything that could combine the two should be pretty epic, right? (And for any Americans reading –…
