THE DAY HATE LOST

THE DAY HATE LOST

By: David Daly

Pray for BostonApril 15th was celebrated across Major League Baseball as Jackie Robinson Day. Sixty Six years ago Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball by playing in his first game as a Brooklyn Dodger. In honor of Jackie Robinson’s courage and life all Major League baseball players wore the number 42, Robinson’s old number. Robinson had to endure the ugliness of racism on a daily basis. He never responded to the hate with anything but a passion to play the game of baseball. It is hard for us to imagine what Robinson had to endure. The movie “42” gives us a glimpse into the world of prejudice and hate Robinson lived through to pave the way for other African Americans to have the freedom to play the game. Without the courage and faith of Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey there might not have been a Hank Aaron or a Willie Mays in Baseball’s Hall of Fame. Robinson never fought back and faced the hate with courage, dignity, and faith. Hate lost that Opening Day in 1947 and baseball as well as all sports won a great victory. Baseball players were judged by their ability not the color of their skin. Hate is always overcome by good. God bless you Jackie Robinson! God bless you Branch Rickey! You have the best seats in the Heavenly bleachers to watch the game you loved!

April 15th was Patriots Day in Boston. For baseball fans it means an eleven o’clock game at Fenway Park. For the running world it is the World Series the Boston Marathon, the most famous of all Marathons. Only the best of the best are able to run the Boston Marathon, one has to qualify by running a set time in another marathon. Men 18-34 had to run a marathon in 3 hours and 5 min. and women in that age group 3 hours and 35 min to qualify for the Boston Marathon. Each age grouping has a qualifying time in order to get in the race…the best of the best. Yesterday at the time when most of the field would be finishing two bombs went off close to the finish line, where spectators were crowded in to support family and friends or just to watch. Three people were killed and 150 injured. Hate once again reared its ugly head. A person/people had so much disregard for human life, so much hate in their heart(s) they set off explosions to kill and hurt as many people as possible. An eight year old boy watching and cheering for his father as he ran was killed.

The Apostle Paul reminds us in Romans 12:21, “Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” The only way for hate to lose is to overcome hate with the good of Jesus Christ. It took two men with a strong faith to overcome hate in the game of baseball. It will take a nation with strong faith to overcome the evil of terrorists who full of hate strike out to kill the innocent. April 15, 1947 hate did not win. With the help of Almighty God and the love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, hate will not win on April 15,2013. Pray for the people of Boston and yes pray for the one(s) who did this for we are commanded by our Lord to pray for our enemies and to love them. LOVE will always overcome hate! May we not rest until the love of Christ is experienced and accepted by every man, woman, boy, and girl in this world!
May the Lord of love bring to those who are suffering this day His peace and comfort which passes all understanding! Blessings!
