It’s Spring! It’s Baseball! It’s John 3:16!
Athletic events bring out signs to remind us that “God so loved the world” (John 3:16). The Greek word in Scripture is kosmos. God so loved the cosmos. If we are to love as God loved, then our love must be immense reaching far beyond Planet Earth. And scientists are telling us that the universe is expanding. So my love must expand. What can I do today to expand my love? Will I remember people living hundreds of miles away in my prayer? Will I be mindful of the closeness of all humanity when I breathe in air that was in China two weeks ago? Will I be careful of earth’s precious resources? If I’ve been too myopic, now’s the time to throw out the first pitch to a new ball game of “Love the Cosmos.”
