In professional baseball, players tend to be labeled by coaches, managers and the front office. “His feet are slow,” “he can’t hit the breaking ball,” “his fastball has no ‘life’,” etc. No matter how hard a player works during the off-season to improve, those labels seem to stick.
Thankfully, God doesn’t label us. He continues to “do a good work” in us (Philippians 1:6). We may be labeled by teachers, co-workers, employers or even family, but God is leading us on a journey to become more like Christ. If we are “coachable,” we will continue to grow as we follow Him.
