April 28: Hands

 

Scripture Lesson: Psalm 37:23-24

 

On this date in 1978, Padres rookie Ozzie Smith made the best defensive play in Major League Baseball history, as voted on by the MLB Network. From his shortstop position, Smith ranged up the middle to field a grounder off the bat of the Braves’ Jeff Burroughs. The ball took a bad hop just as Smith dived for the ball, going behind his head. Smith reached back with his bare hand and snagged the ball, then popped to his feet to throw out Burroughs at first. Smith made the Hall of Fame largely due to his great hands and defense.

 

The words of the Psalmist today should indeed inspire us. If God delights in the way we live, He will make our steps sure. Even if we stumble in life and start to fall God holds us up with His hand. Talk about a great defensive play: God upholding us with His hand. What a great picture for us to see in our minds, God holding us and helping us through life!

  1. How do we make God delight in our ways?

  2. What does it mean to you that our steps will be firm?

  3. How can God keep us from falling in life?

What a blessing for us today to know that God is leading us through life with His loving hand!
