http://www.irishcalvinist.com/?p=4334: Jim Joyce & Armando Galarraga: Learning Contrition, Mercy & Forgiveness on the Baseball Field
It is good for us to see these gospel themes on ESPN and at the water cooler. This is just another example to remind us of the pervasiveness of sin’s effects and the far reaching redemption of Christ’s atonement. Christians could also stand to learn from the humility, confession, and mercy demonstrated by Joyce and Galarraga.
p.s. Couldn’t decide which forum this belonged in!

May we all lose our perfect games and find that they were a mirage in the first place. May we look at the greatest success we can imagine on earth and count it loss compared to the surpassing worth of knowing Jesus. And may we lay our greatest hopes and dreams at the feet of the cross, gazing upon the steadfast countenance of our risen Savior, and join the psalmist in saying, “Whom have I in heaven but you? There is nothing on earth that I desire besides you” (Psalm 73:25). It is then we lose our perfect game and gain our greatest treasure.
