I took this at the Cs house the other day.

Don Sutton was a Major League baseball pitcher for many years, won over 300 games, is in the MLB Hall of Fame, and now is a baseball broadcaster. I heard him the other day, and he said something worth passing on...

When he came into the league with the Dodgers he was the fourth starting pitcher behind Drysdale, Koufax, and Osteen. These three men were all great pitchers and very different personalities. Sutton was young and teachable. Each of these men could have told him to be like them, do what they did, but that is not what they did. Instead as Sutton learned from them, they all told him not to try to copy them but to learn from them and then to figure out how to apply what he learned to himself. To be himself; to learn from them without trying to be them.

I thought that fit really well with what the Lord has been teaching me of late. And the moral of the story is that the Lord can use anything from a donkey to a hall of fame pitcher to speak to His people.
