7 Moments of Spiritual Inspiration from “Friday Night Lights”

From game-winning drives in the fourth quarter and the perfectly imperfect marriage of Tami and Coach Taylor to the famous “Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose” slogan, “Friday Night Lights” captured the hearts of TV viewers. While Dillon, Texas had plenty of football and drama, it’s no secret that there were instances in which the fictional Texas town showed its faith, too. Here are some notable spiritual moments from “FNL”:

Coach Taylor 1

#1: “Give all of us gathered here tonight the strength to remember that life is so very fragile. We are all vulnerable and we will all at some point in our lives fall; we will all fall. We must carry this in our hearts…that what we have is special. That it can be taken from us and that when it is taken from us we will be tested…we will be tested to our very souls. We will now all be tested. It is these times…it is this pain that allows us to look inside ourselves.” — Coach Taylor



#2: Coach Taylor: “I have no idea what’s gonna happen tomorrow, babe.”

Tami Taylor: “Well, you’re gonna win. Or you’re gonna lose. Either way, the sun’s gonna come up the next morning.”



#3 “Maybe we’re forgetting that we’re a lot stronger together than we’re ever gonna be alone.” — Landry



#4: Oh Lord God, we just ask that you be with us on the field tonight. We ask that you inspire us to greatness right now. We ask that you protect us, oh Lord. We ask that you make us proud in defeat and humble in victory.” — Smash



#5: “I said you need to strive to be better than everyone else. I didn’t say you needed to be better than everyone else. But you gotta try. That’s what character is. It’s in the trying.” — Coach Taylor



#6: “There’s no weakness in forgiveness.” — Tami Taylor



#7: “I think it’s good you’re questioning your faith, I just want you to have faith…something that you can hold on to, when I can’t hold on to you.” — Tami Taylor
