I was reading a story about Rob Gronkowski this week. Apparently his father used to line him and his four brothers up and throw tennis balls at them! What’s even crazier is that he started doing this at 4 years old!
His father knew that if the boys wanted to play sports, they couldn’t be afraid of the ball. He wanted to teach them to be ready for anything. Eventually his father couldn’t throw them fast enough so he started using a tennis racket to obtain more velocity lol His boys had tough skin and soft hands. They could catch anything!
I can’t help but think of that verse that begins with, “Train up a child in the way he should go…” Obviously Rob’s father trained him well. Rob now catches bullets every Sunday from his New England Patriot teammate Tom Brady.
So let’s take a look at your life. Are you living in a way that your parents trained you?
