What Not When

Did you know that Ted Williams hit a homerun in his last official game? Or that Mickey Mantle hit 23 home runs in his first year of playing?

What about Golda Meir who became prime minister at age 71? Or George Bernard, who produced a play at age 94? 

Mozart was 7 when his first musical composition was published. Benjamin Franklin worked as a newspaper columnist at age 16 and helped frame the constitution of the United States at age 81!

Age has little to do with ability. Lots of people start out well and peter out toward the end. Age is not an excuse for failing.

It is said that Walt Disney would present a new idea to his board, if even one person agreed with his idea, he wouldn’t do it!

Moses was a hundred and twenty years old when he died, yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength gone. (Deuteronomy 34:7)

The world needs people who can’t be bought, who keep their word, who choose character above all things, who are willing to take a chance for God, who are not ashamed to stand out in a crowd, who will be honest, no matter what the cost, who never compromise with wrong, who care more for others than themselves, who are not ashamed to stand for truth when it isn’t popular.

Will you be that person?
