As a senior in high school, Jim batted 427 and led his team in home runs. He also quarterbacked his football team to the state semi-finals. Jim later went on pitch professionally for the New York Yankees.
That’s a remarkable achievement for any athlete. But it’s an almost unbelievable one for Jim, who was born without a right hand.
A little boy who had only parts of two fingers on one of his hands once came to Jim in the clubhouse after a Yankees game and said, ‘They call me crab at camp. Did kids ever tease you?’
‘Yeah,’ Jim replied. ’Kids used to tell me that my hand looked like a foot.’ And then he asked the boy an all-important question, ‘Is there anything you can’t do?’ The boy answered, ‘No.’
‘Well, I don’t think so either.’ Jim responded.
What others see as your ‘limitation’ today is only a limitation if you think it is. God certainly doesn’t see you as limited. He sees you as having unlimited potential. When we begin to see ourselves the way God sees us, there truly are no limits to what we can do!
