Jesus is a friend who walks in when the world has walked out.

Babe Ruth hit 714 home runs during his baseball career, but on this particular day toward the end of his career, the Braves were playing Reds in Cincinnati, and the Great Bambino was no hero. He fumbled the ball and threw badly. In one inning alone, his errors were responsible for most of the five runs scored by Cincinnati.

As the Babe walked off of the field and headed towards the dugout after their out, a crescendo of angry cries and boos rose to greet him. Then a boy jumped over the railing and ran out onto the field, with tears streaming down his face he threw his arms around the legs of his hero.

Ruth didn’t hesitate for a second, he picked up the boy, hugged him, then set him down and patted his head. The cries from the crowd abruptly stopped. A hush fell over the entire park. In that brief moment fans saw when on the field, Ruth, who in spite of his own dismal day in fielding, cared about the feelings of a young fan; a small boy, who cared about the feelings of another human being.

No matter your performance on the playing field of life today, the Lord has a hug awaiting you at the days end. He is your number one fan.
