Ball Fields

While at the baseball and softball fields this week, I saw hundreds of children playing. I wondered how many of those precious children have been or even will be brought to the feet of our Lord. I believe that many parents invest their time and funds to help their children succeed in a sport that may be a part of their lives for ten to twenty years. What about an investment in their eternity?

Luke 18:16 (NIV)
16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, "Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.

Matthew 16:26-27 (NIV)
26 What good will it be for a man if he gains the whole world, yet forfeits his soul? Or what can a man give in exchange for his soul?
27 For the Son of Man is going to come in his Father's glory with his angels, and then he will reward each person according to what he has done.
