As many San Francisco Giants followers learned yesterday, Brian Wilson, their famous, or infamous pitching closer, may not be able to play ball this year. Pending first, second, third, and possibly more medical opinions, he may have to have surgery for his arm. He has a great attitude, and will use his faith to weather this storm or others that may come across the horizon.
His condition is of importance to us for various reasons. Foremost because he is not ashamed to show his faith. That puts him in a category of the minority of famous folks.
Secondly, we live in the San Francisco Bay Area and are avid followers of the Giants.
So, let’s pray for this man, his team, his fellow teammates–that regardless of their physical condition, they will continue to exemplify that being a follower of Jesus is nothing to be ashamed of, and in fact is something that we all should show, daily.
