Keeping the right score during World Cup

Originally appeared on spirituality.com

I’ve always been an avid sports fan, although not a fanatic. Swimming, football, and martial arts are some of my favorite sports to play. Some I compete in, like darts, while others are just for fun.

I am especially excited about the 2010 football (soccer) World Cup, where I am supporting my favorite team, Brazil. I first rallied behind them during the 2006 World Cup when my country, Kenya, was not represented. Brazil has won the most victories of any team in the history of the World Cup, which made me have faith in them and a strong conviction that they would win again. Cheering for Brazil led me to a valuable spiritual lesson about humility, teamwork, and the importance of having a spiritual sense in everything I engage in.
