Seattle Mariners pitcher Felix Hernandez hurled a rare perfect game against Tampa Bay on Wednesday, August 15. His superb effort on the mound had a profound effect on his teammates. Left fielder Trayvon Robinson commented, “I was going to go through a wall for him. I’d jump in the stands. I was going to sacrifice some limbs.”
Leaders can inspire those around them simply by doing their job in an outstanding way.
Jesus had this kind of effect on people. After hearing him teach and watching him minister to those in need, “People were overwhelmed with amazement. “He has done everything well,” they said…” (Mark 7:37).
You don’t have to pitch a perfect game or perform a miracle in order to influence someone in a substantial way. Just do what God has called you to do, and do it well!
