Curriculum Sharing

  • Building Friendships

    Since the start of this competition, we have never won a match but through this competition we were able to make new friends from other places and have made stronger friendships within our team. It doesn't matter if we win or lose as we all still had fun. I also hope that through this competition pre-believers will come to know God through the sharings.

  • The One Who Will Be There For Me

    In the first curriculum of this Crossroad league, we have learnt that everybody would have faced one of the darkest time in their lives, be it failing your studies, or breaking up with your girlfriend. This is a story of my darkest time in my life. It was when my grandpa passed away last November.

  • Passing on the Blessings

    Then Peter came up and said to him, “Lord, how often will my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? As many as seven times?” Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you seven times, but seventy-seven times. “Therefore the kingdom of heaven may be compared to a king who wished to settle accounts with his servants.

  • God Wants To Heal You

    Throughout my time as an athlete, I've seen people getting injuries during the course of their game, mostly ankle sprain in the game of basketball. Personally, I'm very thankful that not even once did I sprain my ankle or suffer any physical injuries to the extent that I had to stop playing. For those who are familiar with the bible will know that there are many instances of miracle healing in the past compared to the present where we rarely see miracle healing.

  • Planning to Win

    In preparations for a basketball match, coaches and players would have a plan to compete with opponents based on their strengths and weakness. Teams plan out a game plan to achieve a certain goal which in our case, we practices set pieces, we train on our ball handling, shooting, chemistry and etc. However, in a game, unforeseen circumstances can still happen which causes the plan not to go smoothly.

  • Life Values Through Basketball

    I was invited to team Kairos by my history teacher Mr Stanley Tan. Before joining the team, i was playing casual basketball in school almost every single day. However,after the many training sessions i had with team Kairos, i found out that i still had a long way to go before becoming a good basketball player.

  • My First Basketball Game

    As this is my first formal basketball game in my 20 years of life, I felt rather nervous. I was also lost on court. I have made mistakes and missed 3 out of 3 shots.

  • Taming The Tongue

    James 3:7-9 People can tame all kinds of animals, birds, reptiles, and fish, but no one can tame the tongue. It is restless and evil, full of deadly poison. Sometimes it praises our Lord and Father, and sometimes it curses those who have been made in the image of God.

Planning to Win

In preparations for a basketball match, coaches and players would have a plan to compete with opponents based on their strengths and weakness. Teams plan out a game plan to achieve a certain goal which in our case, we practices set pieces, we train on our ball handling, shooting, chemistry and etc. However, in a game, unforeseen circumstances can still happen which causes the plan not to go smoothly. Injuries, opponent counter strategies or team mates fumbles and the uncertainty of making that basket can cause us the match. Supposedly the game plan is to allow us to win, to succeed in the game but when we lost the game, how do we comprehend that?

Now compare this to my life, I planned to be a successful designer and did research to be as specific as I can in order for me to achieve what I want to be, a footwear designer. I look into schools that I can go and the working experiences from schools internship and self-initiated. But I have learnt throughout the years that as much as I can plan, they may not be the best for me. Eg. I planned to study animation after I completed my O levels, but ended up in Product design. I planned to get into the desired companies for internship but ended up in a different type of design company. I learnt that it is because God already had a plan for me. My plans are not the best but certainly His plans are because God knows me the best. And God's first step of the plan is always wanting me to know Him, to have a relationship with Him. The bible tells me that I can only have a relationship with God through Jesus and this relationship is given to use, waiting for us to see it and accept it.

Having say that, I am still planning on what to do with my life, however when I do not get want I planned, I do not get very disappointed because I know God has a plan for me, a much better life plan than mine.

Matt 6:33 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

Seek first the relationship with God and all the good and right things from God will be given.
