Encouragement to the un-athletic

If you can only throw a baseball five feet, if you can only run eight minutes before your lungs give out on you, if you are chosen last for the dodgeball team, then I’ve got an encouraging passage for you:

The Qoheleth has said, “But I say that wisdom better than might, though the poor man’s wisdom is despised and his words are not heard.” Yikes. You may feel better about being so weak, but now you have to worry about being despised . . .

Maybe I can find something that makes despised people feel better!
