Scripture Lesson: Psalm 145:1-7
On this date in 1997, the 50th anniversary of Jackie
Robinson breaking the color barrier in baseball was celebrated before 54,047
fans at Shea Stadium, during a game between the Dodgers and the Mets. President
Bill Clinton and Robinson’s widow Rachel both spoke during the 35-minute
ceremony. The surprise of the evening occurred when Commissioner Bud Selig
announced that the number 42 (Robinson’s number) would be retired in perpetuity
for every team. That was a well-deserved honor for Jackie Robinson’s
contribution to the game of baseball. On the field, the Mets beat the Dodgers
The Psalmist reminds us today of God’s worthiness of praise. God’s
greatness cannot be fathomed by our minds. We need to tell other generations
about God’s greatness. We need to think about God’s splendor and majesty. We
need to tell about His great deeds and celebrate his abundant goodness while
singing of His righteousness. Talk about worthy of honor – all earthly honors
pale next to the greatness of God!
should we praise and honor God?
we honor Him by the way we live our lives?
needs to hear about His greatness and love for us?
No one deserves to be honored and praised as much as God! Take time
today to praise Him for Who He is and what He has done!
