Are You A Hustler?

I wasn’t a Pete Rose fan growing up.  In fact, I disliked him as much as any other baseball player I have ever seen.

No matter how I feel about Rose, though, I have to admit that he hustled.  In fact, his nickname was “Charlie Hustle.”


We, who blog, hear a lot about hustling these days.  I shouldn’t limit it to simply blogging, though.  You hear in podcasts and vlogs as well.  Hustle is the word.  We are encouraged to get up early to hustle.  We are pushed to stay up late to hustle.  Hustling is talked about almost as much as tribes.  It’s on of our buzzwords.

I was thinking about that recently and wondered how that related to our faith.  Do we hustle in our relationship with Jesus?

Jesus, Himself, seemed to hustle.  That’s not to say that he ever seemed to be in a hurry.  He made his way to the teachers in the temple as a boy.  He journeyed to his cousin, John, in order to be baptized.  He ventured into the wilderness where he fasted for forty days.  He even walked across the Sea of Galilee to catch up to his disciples.

Jesus was a hustler.  He went where His Father directed Him.  He sought to do the will of the Father.

Hustle was a characteristic our Lord and Savior.  It ought to be a characteristic that we store in our tool belt as well.  We should hustle in our relationships.  We should hustle in our jobs and careers.  We should hustle in our relationship with Christ.

We should be hustlers.

Are you a hustler?

    Never a Pete Rose fan. i’m old enough to remember his first major league game and running full tilt when he walked for the first time. I want to be different too.

    I’ve been known to hustle at a slow pace.
