You're in good company: Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth

July 27, 2018 Save Article

BIBLE MEDITATION:
“O love the Lord, all ye His saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful.” Psalm 31:23

DEVOTIONAL THOUGHT:
Ty Cobb and Babe Ruth were two of the greatest baseball players of all time. Ty Cobb was known for his record number of stolen bases, and Babe Ruth was known for his record number of home runs. What you may not know is that Ty Cobb was also thrown out more than any other man in baseball trying to steal bases. And Babe Ruth struck out more than any other man in baseball! These fellows didn’t let their failures stop them, and neither should you!

• Fix your goal.
• Face your faults.
• Forget your failures.
• Failure in the Christian life is not final.

ACTION POINT:
Are you discouraged today? Or maybe someone you know is. Remind them (or yourself) of the promise in Philippians 4:13—“I can do all things through Christ, who strengthens me.”
