Cricket is the most watched sport in Gujarat (all of India!) Cricket teams are revered, cricket matches garner thousands of spectators, children play cricket in school, men play in the evenings and on weekends, star players are the heroes of everyone. For many, cricket has been the focus of a large part of their lives as the World Cup is taking place in South Asia this year.
While there is nothing wrong with such a focus on cricket, ultimately it is a only a pastime and cannot give people what they need. Pray that the people of Gujarat will give as much attention to the state of their souls as they do to the cricket scores, will spend as much time thinking about God as they do their favorite players.
1Ch 29:18 O LORD, …direct their hearts toward you.
