Pujols Family Foundation

I read an interesting article this morning in the USAtoday titled "Focus of Cardinals first baseman Pujols: Higher power" , which I think follows up rather nicely to Remy's previous post. In a day and age when sport stars and red carpet celebrities make the news for all the wrong reasons; we have Albert Pujols, first baseman for the Cardinals, doing something that the bible calls all believers in Christ to do, namely care for the less fortunate. He can obviously do other things with the millions he earns and yet he has turned down major celebrity events to do mission trips to his native Dominican Republic. I find this very encouraging and I pray that this recognition does not make us idolize him or make him more full of pride. May we use this as an example of leadership and service. We may not have the resources to accomplish what he is doing, but we do possess the One who can lead and direct his children, "For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them." Ephesians 2:10

May you be blessed and encouraged this day in Christ Jesus of Nazareth!,
