Golfing for Jesus!

Greetings from the SoupMan!

Jesus a golfer??? I'm pretty sure that since Jesus walked the earth about 2,000 years ago he probably wasn't a golfer. The game of golf as we know it has only been around for about 100 years. However the SoupMan can't help but wonder if Jesus walked the earth in our modern times just how good a golfer would he be. Could he beat guys like Tiger Woods, Arnold Palmer and Jack Nicklaus? I'm guessing he could.

More to the point, does Jesus approve of the game of golf? Well there is no way to know for sure because the scriptures never mention the word golf. However the Bible does record many of the words Jesus spoke. Its three of those words that drive me everyday. Three words I think of when I first wake up every morning and three words I think of when I am drifting off to sleep each night. Those #3 words are:


At the SoupMobile we think he meant more than just food when he spoke those #3 words. We believe he also meant love, caring, compassion and shelter. In the Bible Jesus does NOT mention golf as a way to Feed HIS Sheep. Is it okay to use golf as a tool to Feed HIS Sheep? Well I sure hope so because the SoupMobile just completed its 1st Annual Golf Outing on Monday June 7th. All proceeds of the outing go towards Feeding & Sheltering the homeless in the Dallas area.

We had golfers from all walks of life play in our tournament. Men, women, students, presidents of major companies, truck drivers, attorneys, singers, good golfers and some not so good golfers. It was a diverse group of people who came and played in the SoupMobile's 1st Annual Golf Outing. Did they have fun? Of course they did. In fact it was mandatory they have fun. After all, if you golf with the SoupMan and don't have fun, its bad for my rep and we just can't be having that.

More important each golfer came with a common goal---Feeding HIS Sheep. My grateful thanks to all the golfers that participated. Thank you for sharing in my dream of helping the ones Jesus called 'the least of these.' Thank you for coming and golfing for Jesus.

So would Jesus approve of a large group of people hitting a little white ball in order to raise funds to Feed HIS Sheep! The SoupMan is thinking YES! Golfing for Jesus! Now that has a nice ring to it.

p.s. Are you feeling left out because you did not play in the SoupMobile's 1st Annual Golf Tournament? Well no worries as you will get a chance in play in our 2nd Annual Golf Tournament next year. And doesn't that sound just like Jesus---always giving us a second chance.

May the Lord Bless & Keep You.

  1. What a great day! Jesus really blessed all of the SoupMobile golfers that day! I believe Jesus in spirit, drove our golfers on the great job they did on June 7, 2010.
