THOU SHALL ALWAYS STRIVE TO LIVE UP TO THE STANDARDS OF CHRIST

THOU SHALL ALWAYS STRIVE TO LIVE UP TO THE STANDARDS OF CHRIST

Our Tenth Commandment of a Christian Baseball Parent is to always strive to live up to the standards of Christ. I think we left the most challenging commandment to the end!

The world as a whole and the baseball community as a part would be a much better places if we as Christians would just live more like Christ in our daily lives. Philippians 3:27 says, ”Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the Gospel of Christ.” The once popular wrist band, WWJD (what would Jesus do?), should be the mantra we as Christians live our lives. In every aspect of our lives we should react as His people just how He would react.

Jesus has set the bar high when it comes to behavior. It is not about us, but others. It is not about being served, but being a servant. For us to reach His standards of living we must spend time with Him daily. We must grow in our faith by learning more about Jesus so that we can live more like Jesus. When we reflect Christ by the way we live each day, the world will be a better place. We are called to be salt and light to this world by reflecting the Light of the World and flavoring this world with the love of Jesus.

For the problems that plague not just youth baseball, but baseball as a whole, to be solved we must live like Jesus would live. We must love and serve our fellow man. We must share the love that Jesus has so freely given to us. The greatest gift we can give to God, who gave us the greatest of all gifts that first Christmas morning, is a life that is lived for His Glory by His Love!

For us to be the Christian Baseball Parents we need to be, it all starts and ends with CHRIST! Are we living or lives by His standards? Are we growing in our faith daily? Are we committed to give Him our lives in love and service? May we all make a commitment to Christ right now to live for Him by living like Him! Blessings!
