When is the money issue ever going to stop with pro athletes? Everyone is saying it’s Alex Rodriguez’s agent that is making all these demands. Doesn’t A-Rod communicate with his agent? Can’t he tell him what to ask for and what he’s looking for as far as a contract?
Don’t these athletes understand that almighty God gives us every breath we take each day and that He allows these people the blessing of being a professional athlete? Just as this blessing is given, it could be taken away. Thankfulness and humbleness go hand in hand in knowing that God gives us our lives and directs our paths.
It amazes me to see how people strive to get all they can. If they only knew or took the time to look instead of being so caught up in today. Psalm 52:7 says, “He now is the man who did not make God his stronghold but trusted in his great wealth and grew strong by destroying others.”
I think of the game of baseball being destroyed by the players who go too far in their contracts. What happened to the love of the game?
