Giving ‘A Little’ Matters


In high school, I played AAU basketball on an incredible team. Needless to say, I was not a starter! Coach Emil, however, was extremely unique. While most coaches spend the majority of time on the few, he cared equally for the first guy starting to the last guy to get in the game.

“It takes the whole team to create a win. Giving a lot or giving ‘a little’ matters!”Ethan Mitchell
He spent time coaching our best player to another level, but he also spent time with players who came off the bench and expected us to contribute when we got in the game. Some of my team members went off to play collegiate basketball while the rest of us went on to become ‘MVP’s’ on our intramural teams. 🙂

“He makes the whole body fit together perfectly. As each part does its own special work, it helps the other parts grow, so that the whole body is healthy and growing and full of love.”Ephesians 4:16 NLT

Coach Emil believed that giving a little mattered to all. He realized that every person on the team was needed and everyone on the team could make an impact for a win. We won as a team and lost as a team. Our See Jesus campaign is similar. It takes the whole team to create a win. Giving a lot or giving ‘a  little’ matters!

Be a part of what matters!

Being a part of what matters with you,
