This weeks tip is from the 30th President of the United States, Calvin Coolidge. Coolidge took office 15 years after the Chicago Cubs won their last World Series title, until their most recent win this week.
If you watched game 7 of the World Series the other night, you saw baseball at its best. Two teams on the verge of ending historic droughts, extra innings, comebacks, great pitching & hitting – it had it all. The Cubs finally won in 10 innings, but not before giving their fans a few more heart palpitating moments by squandering a 3 run lead in the 8th.
The Cubs showed incredible persistence and determination by wining the World Series after falling behind 3 games to 1. Cub fans have also shown incredible persistence. 108 years is a long time to wait for a World Series title!
In the age of the 24 hour news cycle, social media, shifting changes trends, and free agency, let’s give credit to those long suffering Cubs fans who stuck by their team year after year. Persistence is indeed one of the most valuable traits to have.
“Blessed is the main that perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those that love Him.” James 1:12
