I read this beautiful devotional this morning from Our Daily Bread.
What a lovely story.
See the whole devotional here (Reading is entitled Living in Community)
I copied the introduction story here:
Texas Ranger baseball player Josh Hamilton has battled the demons of drug and alcohol addiction. So when his team won their playoff series in 2010, Hamilton was concerned about the postgame celebration. He admitted that it’s not good for a recovering alcoholic to be in the midst of a “rainstorm” of champagne. But something beautiful happened. Instead of champagne, his teammates stocked the locker room with ginger ale so that Hamilton could be included in the celebration. What a great picture of community and putting others’ needs above your own.
Reading this made me smile.
That’s what Jesus asks us to do…
