Notes & Transcripts

Adrian Gonzalez is the first baseman for the Boston Red Sox. He is also a believer. Each of his bats bears the inscription Ps 27:1. The psalm reads, “The Lord is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?”

When asked about the inscription Gonzalez replied, “Whenever you’re in a tough moment, you look at that bat and realize it’s not about the moment, it’s about God.”

We may never walk to the plate to take swings in a major league ball game, but we all have major league moments in our occupation. Gonzalez’ remedy for putting things in perspective is a good one.

Psalm 27:1 (ESV) The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
