Money Can't Buy You Fans
What happened Alex? We were in the stands during your return as a Texas Ranger. We watched the monopoly money float down from the upper deck as you came to the plate. The boos and catcalls were resounding. You seemed to have chosen money over character. And the fans knew it.
It didn’t change in New York did it Alex? Your personal life fell apart too. When you left your wife and two children that ruined it for me—but for all the young kids who were now old enough to be making their own choices —what about them?
You demonstrated that money mattered most. And when character counted you put yours on the sacrificial altar. Somewhere back in your younger days you might recall your spiritual roots. But perhaps you’ve forgotten one of God’s stern warnings: “The love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.” 1 Timothy 6:10. I hope your money is satisfying, because it can’t buy back those who once cared for you. We just pity you.
