Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. (1 Corinthians 9:24)
I watched a great movie the other night that taught me a good lesson from the Lord. It’s called “Moneyball”. Now there are some things in it that I don’t agree with, but for the most part this is a great movie with a message that can really challenge you, if you let it. I’m not going to share all the lessons I got from the movie because that would be enough to fill a book. Instead, I’m going to focus on the main lesson.
The theme throughout the movie was “To get on base”. The General Manager was putting together a winning Baseball team by looking at the stats of those who most often got on base. The goal was to create a team with the highest average on base.
