The first part of Zechariah 4:10 says, “Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin…”
Here’s my first baseball team picture way back in 1961. (That’s me below the red arrow.) I wonder if the Lord rejoiced to see the beginning of my little league experience?
What am I thinking? Of course he did. My heavenly Father is crazy about me and if I’m into baseball, so is he. What’s really cool is that by choosing me to be on his team, he’s also put me in the starting lineup yet the Bible assures me that when I place my trust in Jesus that he no longer keeps track of the times that I strike out! What a Father I have! What a Savior I serve! He’s given me the game of Life to play and it’s my job to do whatever I can to help the team win.
Supporting Life 101.9 works like that. Each listener (even rookies) do what they can to help provide for the needs of the station and when everyone does something, the whole team wins. Even a small beginning to support Life 101.9 is appreciated and welcomed. Large or small, it is really up to you. But it is important that if you’ve been blessed by Life 101.9 that you do something.
With Fall Share just one week away, I want to appeal to those who have never made a gift to Life 101.9. If you’ve been blessed by this ministry, would you consider even a “small beginning” by making that first gift?
Game on! Batter up! It’s time to change the life of one more Eastern Iowan who needs to hear about God’s love!
And by the way, did you know that baseball IS mentioned in the Bible? In Genesis 1:1, we read, “In the BIG INNING, God created…” (Get it? BIG INNING? 🙂 )
Thanks in advance for partnering with us to uplift Eastern Iowa with music that brings hope and changes lives.
Something to think about.
