Hall of Fame baseball manager Earl Weaver has died at the age of 82. Weaver, one of the game’s most successful managers, was known for his many arguments with umpires. Weaver was thrown out of 91 games in his career. Once he was ejected from both games of a doubleheader!
While arguing and complaining may be acceptable behavior in major league baseball, it is not appropriate in the church. Philippians 2:14 says, “Do everything without complaining or arguing.”
A fiery temper may allow you to get into the baseball Hall of Fame, but if you want to be in the church Hall of Fame, you’ll need to have a better attitude.
