Highly Paid Hockey Players February 3, 2016

Canadian hockey players are well paid athletes. For the 2014-2015 season, Brad Richards from PEI received two million. Brad Malone from New Brunswick got six hundred thousand, Sydney Crosby from Nova Scotia, got twelve million, and Alberta’s Dion Phaneuf earned eight million. Their earnings are based on their skills. Most of us aren’t good hockey players or make this kind of money. But in terms of our relationship to God, when we pass from this life, we can receive the best pay of all- eternal life. Fortunately, this isn’t based on character or lifestyle, because “all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” and none of us is good enough to earn his or her way into heaven.” But when we admit our inability to get into heaven on our own, and humbly ask the Lord for forgiveness, we learn that regardless of skin colour, social standing, or educational level. “the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord.”
