I was listening to the recap of a baseball game this morning as I drove to church.
The team that eventually won had been down 6 runs going into the ninth inning. How did they win? One hit at a time. One pitch at a time. They did not try to score six runs at once. They put their focus on what they could control in the moment, not what they could not.
This got my wheels turning.
In the church, I spend way too much time looking for the six-run move. Instead, I need to look for hits. One at a time. Let them add up. And we’ll see where the score is at the end of the day.
Where can I get a hit today? This is a question I’ve been trying to get in my head.
