Major league pitcher Ron Guidry had had enough. When the management of the New York Yankees decided he needed more development and sent him back to their farm team, he told his wife, “That’s it! I’m not going back to the minor leagues. I quit.” So the Guidry’s packed their stuff and headed back to their home town. Well at a restaurant near their house, Ron’s wife’s persistent encouragement paid off. He decided to report to his minor league team and give it one more shot. The next year Ron Guidry won the Cy Young award as the best pitcher in baseball.
Never forget that the power of encouragement can turn the most disappointed circumstances into an opportunity for success. You know, it’s the ability to say the right thing at the right time. I’m Mark Evans, pastor of the Church at Rock Creek. You know the great thing about encouragement is that it doesn’t cost us anything. We can give it without any negative impact on our checkbook or our finances. It doesn’t even require massive amounts of time. It’s a seed that we can plant in another person’s life. Water it on a regular basis and watch it grow with amazing results. For such a small investment, it reaps a huge reward. So take time to encourage someone close to you today. It’s one of the easiest and best gifts you’ll ever give.
