Never Give Up ... Royals StyleNovember 02, 2015
During a walk with my family yesterday afternoon, my eyes glanced over toward a wooded spot along the trail. It's a place where my gaze frequently lingered the past few months. Early in the summer, my three-year-old son found a baseball in the weeds next to a baseball field. He was ecstatic! On the way home, he kept talking about the ball and playing with it in his yard.
There's something inspiring about a group that just won't quit. As theologian Scot McKnight - a professor at Northern Seminary and a Cubs fan - remarked on Twitter during the game last night, "Wow, the Royals do not quit." No, they do not. McKnight didn't offer a theological connection, but it's inspiring to watch people who refuse to give up.
May we always have that determination to keep striving. Keep looking for the ball you need to keep the line moving.
