Have you ever been the one (like Me) who was always the last one or next to last
to be chosen on the team? My whole life I have been the one who sweated bullets
worrying if I was going to make the team or worse, be picked last. No one, I mean
no one, wants to be picked last.
Have you ever tried out for a sport or competition and not be picked? When I was
in 8th grade we didn't have a baseball team that year and so I went out for tennis.
I know, I know it wasn't necessarily a macho sport but it was where the girls played.
I wasn't extremely surprised not to make the team but it did hurt my ego.
It's hard when we're not chosen. Whether it is from a team, a job or the prom to
not be chosen says, "I'm not good enough". Do you ever feel not good enough? Do
you ever get nervous when there is a possibility you won't make the team or get the
job? Odds are we all have felt that way at one point or another in our lives so
let me share this last thought.
Regardless if your the first person chosen or the last there is one that is mightier
than any jock, any coach, any beauty queen and boss. In fact, He is the boss of
bosses. His name is Jesus Christ and he has chosen YOU! In fact while he hung on
a Cross, suffering for the sin of all man kind, He chose YOU to give ever lasting
life to. He died for YOU so that YOU could be forgiven and so that YOU could be
saved. He has chosen YOU so will YOU now receive Him?
