“Ted Lasso” Teaches Us to Let Kindness Guide Us Through Tough Times

On the surface, Emmy award winning comedy “Ted Lasso” is a comedic tale of an out-of-place American football coach brought to the U.K. to lead a British soccer team. The show deals with questions of success, talent, fitting in, and more.

Despite the show’s many evolving messages, one theme stands at the forefront of the series: kindness.

Throughout the show, protagonist Ted Lasso has to manage to coach a struggling team, deal with financial difficulties, grapple with changing relationships, and more, all while wrestling with feelings of isolation and learning to fit after moving to a foreign country.

At the end of the day, Ted’s commitment to kindness, regardless of the tough situations he’s put in, leads Ted and his team to conquer their struggles.

“For me,” Ted declares in the first season, “success is not about the wins and losses. It’s about helping these young fellas be the best versions of themselves on and off the field.”

The Bible tells us to be “kind and compassionate with one another.” Sometimes, treating others with kindness and respect can be difficult without a guide.

As we deal with the many uncertainties and struggles in our world and in our lives, it’s important to look to role models such as Ted Lasso who exemplify turning to faith and kindness over fear.

When choosing what to watch, turn to shows that teach us and our children to be kind and good to each other. With more faithful and kind role models, our world will be a much more compassionate place.
