Shaggin' Fly Balls With Jesus

“Bear one another’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.” Galatians 6:2 (NRSV)

Our friend Charla Jeter Milligan is the Associate Director of His Heart Ministries in Jackson. She’s a Carey and Truett girl and a good minister. From time to time she sends me “kid stuff” parables. I confess to stealing them for my sermons. She sent me one yesterday that is appropriate for this time of year. Baseball is in tha air and we have many lessons to learn from the great game. I admit – this one made me cry. Yes, there is crying in baseball. If you’ve ever played you know it’s true. Read ‘em and weep poker players.

From Charla -
Ethan was at baseball practice and for every ball they dropped, they had to run the bases. Well, after practice the kids were running the bases and each one finished except Ethan and another kid. Afterward, Dave asked him, "Ethan you must have dropped the ball a lot since you had to run the bases so much." He said, "No, Daddy, I just didn't want that other kid to run alone." We could all learn something from this.16 hours ago
