March 6: Giving of Yourself

 

Scripture Lesson: 1Timothy 1:1-2

 

The Veterans’ Committee, on this date in 2001, elected Bill Mazeroski to the Hall of Fame. The Pirates second baseman was a great defensive player and is probably best known for his walk-off home run in Game Seven of the 1960 World Series, pitting the Pirates against the Yankees. Now Mazeroski has taken Neil Walker, current Pittsburgh second baseman, under his wing and has worked with him on his defense. Walker said, “Maz was so gracious with his time in working with me on the finer points, especially turning the double play. It was important to me to take my defensive game to the next level in Spring Training this year and Maz was instrumental in my development.”

 

Timothy would be the young minister that Paul took under his wing to help develop. In our scripture lesson, Paul calls Timothy “my true son in the faith.” The letters of 1st and 2nd Timothy are written to help guide the young minister to reach his potential for the Kingdom. Just as Mazeroski working with Neil Walker produced several double-play gems in 2011, Paul working with Timothy helped to produce a young developing minister for the Gospel. It is important for those of us who have experience in life to be willing to pass that along. It means so much to someone when we invest our time in them. Paul did it, Maz did it, and we need to do it! Giving of ourselves can make a Kingdom difference in the life of others.

  1. Why is it important to give of ourselves to others?

  2. Who is someone we need to reach out to invest in his or her life?

  3. Thank God for those who have made a Kingdom difference in our life.

Giving of oneself sounds like something Jesus would do!
