The baseball playoff season is well underway. This exciting series of games leading up to the World Series pits the best teams of Major League Baseball against each other. The playoffs begin with the eight best teams in the league competing against each other for division titles. After each series of five games, one team is eliminated. Soon, there are only two teams left to compete against each other in the World Series, and only one can win. Costly mistakes and team disunity can cost a team a spot in the playoffs and a chance to compete for the World Series.

In a way, the baseball playoffs reflect a lot about life. We are in competition with ourselves, and sometimes against others, to do what is right in life. We aim to live good and upstanding lives, but just like a baseball team, mistakes can cost us a lot.

In fact, in God's economy, mistakes, which God calls sins, can cost us the chance of our entrance into Heaven. Because of our tendency to sin, we are often eliminated from receiving the greatest prize in all the world -- eternal life and a home in Heaven with God.

However, because God loves us, He does not want us to miss out on such a valuable prize. That is why He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die for our sins -- taking the punishment that we deserve. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
