The Messi Mess

Aug 25, 2021

Probably there are few people who don’t know who Lionel Messi is — he’s world renowned as a footballer. Well, his loyalty and life are so intimately tied to Spanish club Barcelona FC that the news a few weeks ago came as a shock to football fans, as well as to Messi and his family — he wouldn’t be retuning to Barcelona as financial details couldn’t be worked out.

Today, on the podcast, I talk about how often we make plans — plans for career, education, marriage, retirement, and so much more, but really those things need to be subject to the will of God

I am Rev Brad Kenney, and this is the Soccer Chaplains United podcast, From the Touchline.

Today, on the podcast I mention some verses in the Bible. They are hyperlinked here (available on our website) for quick reference:

  • Many are the plans, but the Lord’s purpose prevails: Proverbs 19:21
  • Commit your ways to the Lord and he will establish your plans: Proverbs 16:1-4, 9
  • Saying, If it’s the Lord’s will, we will do this or that: James 4:13-17

From the Touchline is a short-feature (usually 10-15 min) podcast with Rev Brad Kenney, Founder and Executive Director of Soccer Chaplains United and Volunteer Chaplain to the Colorado Rapids of Major League Soccer.

Rev Brad and occasional guests touch on various issues around the topics of faith, family, and football (soccer).

Also, don’t forget that you can listen in our app, SoccrChapUtd, in the Apple and Google store.
