High school players taking knee for anthem

Son, You better stand unless you're kneeling for the one {Jesus}

Son, You better stand unless you’re kneeling for the one {Jesus}. Son, I am not your coach but I am your Mother. Son, I am not your Daddy but I am your Mother. Son, we’ve come way too far for you not to stand when you can. Son, the only time we take a knee in public or private is to change our physical position in an act of worship. Son, we change our posture and get down low to the ground from which we came to give honor and glory to the one. Son, please do not be deceived. This lack of reverence to the kneeling position is just another attack from the deceiver. If he can steal the reverence for bending and bowing in an act of worship¬†on the field then he can begin to kill and destroy your current and future joy. I will say it again, I better not see you take a knee on the field or in private unless you are posturing yourself in an act of prayer to the almighty and righteous God that we serve. You better not do it. I am not playing! Don’t you dare follow the crowd in diminishing this act of public worship and out right dependence¬†on the one who protects, provides and produces all things. I am so, not done yet

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. John 10:10 (ESV)
