The Perfect Referee
When the Perfect Referee exited the field a while ago, replacements were sent to oversee the game until He returned. Just like the recent controversy with the replacements, many plays have been called improperly. No matter which position you play, you know the rules of the game of life. You can blame the ref for not seeing everything, or you may even get away with something, however, the Perfect Referee sees everything.
Life is more complicated than football. Teams compete in their own divisions. There are many rivalries. I remember what the Perfect Referee said when he was searching for replacements to oversee the game until His return. Jesus simplified the rules. He said, "'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind'; and, 'Love your neighbor as yourself.'"
It was nice to see all the attention given to the first string refs when they returned to the football field. Imagine how it will be when the Perfect Referee is back. Loyal fans will be holding up their John 3:16 posters while everyone in the stadium does the Tim Tebow pose.
