Lead Us Not into Temptation
The challenges that Christian athletes face in their daily lives (In the Fields of the Lord) are identical to what all Christians face. We are often so aggressive in our careers that we compete with behavior that is contrary to what God commands. Temptation will always be at battle with what the Lord commands, regardless of your profession.

In a photo illustration for the Feb. 11 SCORECARD essay on PED use in baseball, a picture identified as former Yankee Melky Cabrera was actually that of then teammate Eduardo Nuñez. Nuñez has never been implicated in PED use. SPORTS ILLUSTRATED regrets the error.
