As I posted the new page for visuals for this past Sunday, I was reminded that one of the members of our congregation gave me a great illustration for this past Sunday’s sermon after service. I was illustrating by talking about the need for baseball players to be alert. He said it was a true story. When he was playing Little League, his team was in the field. An opposing player hit the ball straight to the center fielder. The center fielder might have caught the fly had he not been laying flat out in the grass picking dandelions at that moment. I still can’t stop laughing at that one. Talk about no alertness. But, sadly, I suspect that often we as Christians are so focused on our own agenda that we are just as oblivious to what God is trying to say or do through us.
