Give glory to the Lord...
Then Joshua said to Achan, “My son, I implore you, give glory to the LORD, the God of Israel, and give praise to Him; and tell me now what you have done. Do not hide it from me.” (Joshua 7:19)
(Tim) MLB's pitching superstar, Roger Clemens, has been indicted for lying and obstruction of justice in testimony he gave before Congress about his use of performance enhancing drugs. In "Pettitte's Words and Character Carry Weight," the Times' George Vecsey compares Clemens to his longtime friend, Andy Pettitte, whose testimony carried the most weight in assuring Clemens' indictment.
Vecsey reports Clemens is "the alpha male in that friendship, the man with the huge gymnasium on his property, the man who knew how to train his way to eternal youth, to the Hall of Fame one day."
Vecsey says he's "humble" and that when he provided testimony before Congress, he...
gave "his testimony a week earlier in more private depositions, a concession from the committee staff, so he would not have to stand in direct contrast to his former teammate."
A witnessing Christian, Pettitte is liked and respected in his clubhouse. He said he dabbled in bodybuilding drugs to help himself recuperate from injury; he admitted it to investigators, but he would not lie to protect his old training buddy.
Humble, a witnessing Christian, and truth-telling about his own and others' sin. Thank you, Lord, for this witness to your glory by our brother, Andy Pettitte.
