Books and Baseball Bats
Visit my office and you'll seed a lot of two different things...books and baseball bats. So, the following quote by Steve Rushin in the latest issue of Sports Illustrated caught my eye. He writes, in the column entitled AIR AND SPACE:
"God made trees for three reasons: to give us books, to give us baseball bats and to give us shade in which to read books about baseball."
I'm a guy who loves God, books and baseball (in that order) so I thought it was a quote worth sharing.
There's a 4th reason though...
God made trees so Zacchaeus, the crooked, dishonest tax collector could get out on a limb and eventually have a life-changing encounter with His Son, Jesus Christ...that afternoon.
Have you met Jesus? Has He changed your life? I trust you can answer "Yes" to both of these questions.
Have a great weekend!
