Good morning, this is Topher and Gabriel from Washington Church of Christ, bringing you a positive Message Minute. 

Here's a positive direction for all you parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, coaches, and friends out there who will be following one of America's great past times this spring and summer.  Consider following Paul's words in Ephesians on the baseball field as he says,

"Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building others up…" - Ephesians 4:29a

I'm coaching Gabriel's little league baseball team, which means I'm charged with teaching these young impressionable boys some baseball and life skills.  I know, I know, I know, our current culture tells us that it is ok to direct, yelling, insults, distractions, and things we call "chatter" toward kids and adults to diminish their performance (as long as they are on the OTHER team).  Yet, if we believe the Bible gives us direction for what we do on the baseball field and off of it, then we might be convicted in heart by the direction, "Let no unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building others up." 

Now, about those umpires…

I challenge you to consider changing your voice this season in sports and in life to an encouraging one that seeks only to build others up.  You'll be glad you did.
