Church Family and Friends

November 26, 2022. I know it is the middle of football season. This week is called "College football's rivalry week."

This baseball article reminds me of the Godly attitude we must have as Christians.

Forty thousand fans were on hand in the Oakland stadium when Rickey Henderson tied Lou Brock's career stolen base record. According to USA Today, Lou, who had left baseball in 1979, had followed Henderson's career and was excited about his success. Realizing that Rickey would set a new record, Brock said, "I'll be there. Do you think I'm going to miss it now? Rickey did in 12 years what took me 19. He's amazing."

The real success stories in life are with people who can rejoice in the successes of others. What Lou Brock did in cheering on Rickey Henderson should be a way of life in the family of God. When we rejoice when other Christians enjoy blessings, we receive a joyful spirit. We are on the same team. We are a part of the body of Christ.

(Romans 12:5) So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and everyone members one of another.

If you are having a tough day, find someone God has blessed, and don't be jealous, but rejoice with them. God will bless you when you rejoice with others. As Christians, we are not to be rivals. We are teammates.
