Like Sinatra or Babe Ruth


"It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt"

Mark Twain

If someone had compared my hitting to that of Babe Ruth, I certainly would have been flattered. If a singer's voice is compared to Sinatra or Streisand, I am sure that they would have reason to feel pretty good too... At The Transfiguration, in Mark's account, having seen Jesus glowing in dazzling white clothes and talking with Elijah and Moses, a frightened Peter makes a suggestion. "Rabbi, it is good for us to be here. Let us make three tabernacles, one for You, and one for Elijah, and one for Moses" (Mk.9:5). It is not the first or will it be the last time that Peter makes a foolish comment. Whether or not he meant it, Peter seems to put Jesus on the same level as the other two men. Compare me to Babe Ruth and I'm flattered, however, no comparison can be drawn to Jesus Christ, God's only Son, and God cleared things up right away... "Then a cloud appeared and enveloped them, and a voice came from the cloud: 'This is my Son, whom I love. Listen to Him!'" I cannot, nor will I try, to outdo God... God made it abundantly clear! Jesus was His Son and there was no comparison! Jesus made it perfectly clear to us that when we decide to become His follower, we have to be all in. Its not like a hobby or some other interest that we can turn on and off at our discretion... When we choose Jesus, we have chosen the best... Nothing else is remotely close...

Have a wonderful day.. Go about doing good... Love mark Phil.4:11
