Scripture calls Christians to do everything for the glory of God. Every thought, word, and action should bring honor to him. This includes playing, watching, and talking sports! But how do sport fit into the big picture of living a life that glorifies God? How does the God that created the universe care about our weekend Little League games our Monday Night Football? Game Day for the Glory of God seeks to answer that question from a biblical perspective. Sports fan Stephen Altrogge gives biblical guidance on playing, watching, and discussing sports in a God-glorifying manner.

Sports are a gift from God but we’ll waste this gift if we play for our own glory. So how do we play for God’s glory and not our own?


The booklet, Don't Waste Your Sports by C.J. Mahaney, provides a biblical worldview of sports so that we don’t waste this gift. “I had the opportunity to glorify God in my sports,” C. J. writes, “and I fumbled it. I wasted my sports. You have the opportunity, by the grace of God, not to waste yours.”
