|Cell Parable: Major League Baseball
Rarely do people consider the advantages of a good Little League baseball game over Major League Baseball.
The Little League game is free. I attend with people I know and trust and we all can sit within 20 feet of the game.
We all know each others’ names, jobs, families and situation. No strangers are present, except for the other team. We
can bring coolers of food and drinks from home, and often share them with each other. The bleachers are comfortable
or you can bring your own lawn chairs. Everyone can sit within a few feet of the players.
The Major League game is expensive. All the other people in the stadium are strangers who I don’t know or trust.
You can’t bring food and drinks from home; you have to stand in line and pay a high price for food. You have to pay to
park and there’s a huge traffic jam when the game’s over.
Last week I explained to the officials at a Major League baseball stadium that the game shouldn’t start until
everyone in the stands had shaken hands and introduced themselves to each other so we wouldn’t be strangers. They
thought I was a kook.
Obviously, there is no future to professional baseball when you have such great fellowship at the little league level.
It’s cheap and it’s easy, and my kid is the star. Who could ask for anything more?
|THERE ARE MAJOR LEAGUE CHURCHES. MANY PEOPLE ATTEND THEM.
Some people are bothered by a large church of thousands of people; they don’t like a big crowd.
Well, there are going to be a lot of people in heaven and a lot of people in hell.
Wherever you’re going, you might as well get used to it. - Bishop Eddie L. Long
