UMTITI U-TURN & UR U-TURN – Duke Jeyaraj short Devo from the France – Belgium Semifinals of the Russia 2018 World Cup

456CBE99-C8CA-4065-A33E-9549B4F9C303Center-back Samuel Umtiti, the French player of Cameroonian origin, was the butt of jokes when he inexplicably decided to handle a cross into his penalty box in France’s group game versus Australia. Australia scored off the penalty awarded following Umtiti’s handball. The score which was 1-0 in France’s favour became 1-1 and they eventually won 2-1. Paul Pogba’s 81st-minute goal saved France the blushes in that game. In the World Cup Semi-final versus beautiful, brave, blame-free Belgium, the same Umtiti scored the only goal off a well-directed early second-half header to launch feisty, fast-paced, fiery France into the World Cup 2018 Final. What a graduation from a stupid hand-ball to an intelligent ‘head-ball’ for Umtiti! You may have goofed-up. You may have blundered. You may have done stupid things. But you don’t have to continue in that stupidity. You don’t have continue in that folly. Like the lost son Jesus spoke about, you can ‘come back to your senses’ (Luke 15:17) and make the ‘wise choice’ of returning to your waiting, loving Heavenly Father, because it can be too late for you to come back to Him, at any second.(Duke Jeyaraj is the founder of Grabbing the Google Gen from Gehenna Mission.
