Back in Little League, rules were rules – even if you were the coach’s son. If you flunked a subject, you didn’t play until you passed. Mr. Robins was the fairest coach I ever played for. No favoritism. All of us – including his sons – studied hard or we didn’t play. The same holds true when it comes to discipline in the church. “Before God and Christ Jesus and the elect angels, I solemnly charge you to carry out these commands without prejudice or favoritism of any kind.” (1Tim. 5:21) What works in the church, works in baseball, and works in the family too. Don’t play favorites.
