In 1931, Knute Rockne died in a plane crash at the age of 43. Having led Notre Dame’s football program for the last ten years, Rockne was recognized as America’s first great college coach. His lessons are still taught in locker rooms and on football fields today.
Here’s just one gem from the legendary coach: “One man practicing sportsmanship is far better than 50 preaching it.”
Said another way, “Faith without works is dead” (James 2:17).
Sex addicts are good talkers. We know how to say the right thing to deflect from our behavior. We know how to make our spouse think she’s the crazy one. We know how to present ourselves as the person we want others to think we are.
I suggest we embrace Coach Rockne’s words, with a slight twist: “One man practicing recovery is far better than 50 preaching it.”
Recovery Step: Become the person you want others to think you are.
