April 6: Persistence


Scripture Lesson: Hebrews 6:9-12


Today is the birthday of 2011 Hall of Fame 2011 inductee Burt Blyleven. Blyleven had been eligible for election to the Hall for many years finally got the call in 2011. In his career, Blyleven won 287 games with 3701 strikeouts and a 3.31 career ERA. Blyleven pitched in almost 5,000 innings, completed 262 games, and threw 60 shutouts. His great play on the field paid off in his election to the Hall of Fame, even though it took a while. His persistence in his career paid off.


God will not forget what we do for Him, according to the writer of Hebrews. It is important for us to remain diligent in serving God and to imitate those who have set such an example for us to follow. God wants us to be persistent in everything we do for His Kingdom. One of the ways we show God we love Him is to help others. So let’s keep up the good work, work hard daily in living for Him, and love God by serving others.

  1. What does it take to be persistent in our faith?

  2. How does being persistent relate to success on the baseball field?

  3. How persistent have we been in our faith?

Blyleven finally got into the Hall of Fame, though much later than he deserved. His persistence paid off, as will ours when we are persistent in our faith.

Great blog! Do you have any recommendations for aspiring writers?

I'm hoping to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
Would you propose starting with a free platform like Wordpress
or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally confused
.. Any tips? Kudos!

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It's pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will
be much more useful than ever before.
