Reconnect One: Under ArmorNovember 29, 2018
He couldn’t have been more than 5. Everyone in the race was bigger with longer legs but no one had their sights set on the prize like this kid. Sure enough, he won!
Half an hour later there were awards and he beamed as he received his trophy and took the mic from the MC. He had a speech prepared.
“I’d like to thank my mom and dad and Under Armour for helping me achieve this victory today.”
As we were all returning to our cars I discovered his family was parked right next to me. I congratulated the boy and asked about his shout out to Under Armour. The whole family laughed and his mom explained. “Well, every morning one of our practices is to pray through Ephesians 6 and actually armor up for the day ahead. We call it our under armor – the layer we wear under everything else so we’ll be prepared for whatever challenges we face that day.
Under armor! I’m wearing mine – are you?
