Scripture Lesson: Proverbs 14:25

On this date in 2007 the Kansas City Royals hired Trey Hillman to manage the team. Hillman a successful skipper in the Minor Leagues and in Japan, never played or managed in the Big Leagues. The 44 year old Hillman spent 13 seasons in the dugout in the Yankees farm system. It was during that time that I took my then young children to a Minor League game. They had a ball and got some autographs and were so excited when they came back and Hillman had not only signed the ball but put Philippians 4:13 under his name. “ Look Dad, he put a Bible verse.”

Our Scripture lesson today from the book of Proverbs reminds us a truthful witness saves lives. One of the greatest ways you can witness on and off the field is to sign autographs with your favorite Bible verse. You can also put the verse on the underside bill of your cap. When we are not ashamed of our faith and we use opportunities to share His love by sharing His Word, we have potential to bring someone to Christ. Take advantage of every opportunity to be a good witness for Christ!

1. How can you witness on the field for Christ?
2. How can you witness off the field for Christ?
3. Why is there such an urgency to be a good witness for Christ?

Something as simple as a Bible verse reference under an autograph made a difference in the lives of two children. Let’s be a good witness for Christ in how we live each day!!
