Where Honor is Due . . .


I substitute teach in the Millsap School District. I love every minute of being on campus because of the opportunity to be there with the students. A few weeks ago, one of the Millsap students, Dalyn Clanin, who is #33 on the Millsap Varsity Basketball team, walked up to me and asked if I was going to attend their district playoff game. I didn’t really give him an answer because I hadn’t checked my calendar nor with my wife. I didn’t make that game, but I did make it to the area playoff game. Like so many high schools in the area, the Bulldogs played amazingly. I was a witness to the win. It was such a joy. I also made it to the first round of regional playoffs. Millsap didn’t win that game. But, what I saw was a group of young men play their hearts and souls out on the court.

This was against a team that overshadowed us with talent. Our men fought the battle anyway to the very last blow of the horn. The Bulldogs lost by 22 points, but they fought “tooth and nail.” I am so proud of their effort.

So, what do we do when young people do so well? Our congregation is supporting the team and the fans with a Worship Service honoring them this Sunday at 11 a.m., and a nice BBQ brisket lunch following. Why? Because of Paul’s instruction.

I want to encourage you to always “honor one another above yourselves.”

Tommy Pophin is the pastor of Beulah Baptist Church. You are invited to join him and the congregation on Sunday Mornings at 9:45 a.m. for Sunday School and 11 a.m. for Worship. The church is located at 350 Beulah Lane at Fox Road in Millsap.
