Ron Hunt played major league baseball in the 1960s and ’70s. Hunt was a pretty good hitter, twice batting over .300 for a season. But he was best known for getting on base by allowing himself to be hit by a pitch. When Hunt retired, he held 3 major league records for getting hit by a pitch: 243 in a career, 50 in a season and 3 (tied) in a game.
Hunt had a great quote about his special talent—“Some people give their bodies to science; I give mine to baseball.”
Being a Christian isn’t easy. Living for Jesus daily takes a toll on your mind, body and soul. Let’s be willing to make the kind of sacrifices that leave marks on us.
“From now on, let no one cause me trouble, for I bear on my body the marks of Jesus.”—Galatians 6:17.
