Josh Hamilton Alcohol Relapse: Rangers Star Confirms Drinking Report

Commented Feb 6, 2012 at 16:43:57 in Sports

“Scahill . . . the cool thing about God is that He doesn't make you do anything you don't want to do. He simply asks that you follow Him, and the fact that He watches over you does not mean that He will orchestrate your life. What He does do is give a man or woman a set of principles that will guarantee an abundant and successful life (don't tie abundant and successful to paycheck size). God made us human and that humanity is fraught with defects. We can't be perfect, but we can try our best to be what He would like for us to be . . . people who are honorable and decent. Will we fail? You bet, but God doesn't want our failures to be the bedrock of who and what we are. Just like the fathers we have on earth, Our Heavenly Father knows we are going to fail, but when we do, he is always there to look us lovingly in the eyes and say, "you are still mine and I love you without condition. He will figuratively pick us up when we fail to meet His standards, but the decision to keep our eyes on Him and be what He wants us to be is ours and ours alone. Sure . . . Josh had a weak moment and succumbed to it, but the sum of what a person really is cannot and should not be underscored by a small handful of failures.”
