Room for Improvement

Dave Bristol

Here’s a quote from Dave Bristol, manager of the Milwaukee Braves baseball team in 1972—“There’ll be two buses leaving the hotel for the ball park tomorrow. The 2 o’clock bus will be for those of you who need a little extra work. The empty bus will leave at 5 o’clock.”

This was a clever way of pointing out to his players that they all had some room for improvement.

Those of us who live for Jesus must never think that we have ever reached the point where we can’t improve upon our lives. We must always be seeking to learn more and to grow in our service and love for God and for people.

“Be diligent in these matters; give yourself wholly to them, so that everyone may see your progress.”—1 Timothy 4:15.
