Since April 1st news has been trickling out of Arkansas about disgraced football coach Bobby Petrino. In short, he was fired earlier today for a) lying to his superiors about a motorcycle accident he had b) involving his 25-year old mistress whom he had hired for a position a few days earlier, and c) given $20,000. Petrino, 51, is married with four children. Talk about an ugly situation!
Petrino threw away a $3.6 million a year job, and his family life is in shambles. U-G-L-Y!
While there’s a lot that can be said about this situation, the biggest thing that pops out right now is this: the light shines in darkness, always. What’s done in secret comes to the light (Mark 4:22). Beware what you do in your personal life in “secret.” It will be seen at some point, and it will affect your spouse and children.
The light shines in darkness.
