How is Living Without God’s Spirit Like Trying to Dribble a Football?

The Searsport Full Gospel Church informed me today that “Living without God’s spirit is like trying to dribble a football.”

Searsport Full Gospel Church in DownEast Maine: Living Without God's Spirit is like Trying to Dribble a Football

But exactly how is living without God’s spirit like trying to dribble a football?

Is living without God’s spirit like going outside and slapping leather repeatedly?  No, that’s too literal.

Maybe living without God’s spirit is like being a European, because over there they dribble footballs all the time, and live without God’s spirit fairly often too (concidence?):

Dribbling a Football is pretty darned common in Europe, where living without God's spirit is pretty common, too. Coincidenk?

Or even over here in the United States, maybe living without God’s spirit is something that you can do pretty darned well with a bit of practice:

I think that church sign is really on to something.

    Living without God’s spirit is creative and fun, by all appearances. It doesn’t follow the rules that certain powerful institutions tell everyone that they have to live by, but really, who made them the boss of everyone?

      Yeah! Living without God’s spirit is repurposing what’s available. It’s taking what’s at hand in the world around you and having a good time with it, even if someone told you you’re supposed to do something else with it.

    My favorite church sign, obviouslywritten by someone for whom proofreading was a mystery, “Bless God, America”

    And it seems these kids are doing just fine, dribbling the stuffing outta footballs.
