Think About ItPastor Rich LaskowskiI was in little league, playing right field, and wasn't very good. We were warming up onthe field before the game with pop flies, when a ball clipped the top of my mitt and hitme square on the nose. Sounds of sympathy rose from the stands. With my young maleego slightly wounded I came in and stood next to the dugout waiting for the game tostart. As I stood there I struck my best baseball pose and leaned against a poleI quickly noticed that someone had painted the pole with a fresh coat of tar.My brand-new uniform stuck to the gooey tar as I tried to pull away. Again, a sound ofsympathy rose from the stands, mostly from the mothers who felt sorry for this poorpitiful, bruised nose, tar covered, little boyAfter several years of humiliation playing little league baseball, something happened -I grew. By the time I was sixteen I pitched and won the championship gameThings had changedSometimes the start can be rough, but what matters is how you finish. Things canchange with time. They can get better. We may need to grow and mature, but this yearcan be better than last year. Don't give up. Think about itChrist Community ChurchBrazil, Indianawww.christcommunitychurch. org
