It's About Others

I sat today reminiscing Thursday's game and a really cool thought dawned on me. We had to stop the game when one player fell and the coaches helped him up and dusted off his knees. He trucked it on to first base. Once on first, we had to stop the game AGAIN so the first baseman could go over the batter (on the other team), make sure he was ok, and dust his knees some more.

How many times do we worry about number one to ensure that we get the biggerbetterbest? How many other games will you see stopped so players on opposite teams can check on the welfare of their opponents? How long will we only think of ourselves and not realize the greatest gift in situations often arise when we put others first? This player got it right...

...It's really about others.
Matthew 20:16
"So the last shall be first, and the first last."
