June 17: No Doubt

 

Scripture Lesson: Matthew 21:21-22

 

On this date in 1942, Boston Braves right fielder Paul Waner was standing on first base when he gestured to the official scorer Jerry Moore of the Boston Globe, asking him not to credit him with a base hit on a ball in the hole that had been knocked down by the Reds shortstop Eddie Joust. Waner did not want his historic 3,000th hit to be on a questionable roller. Waner got his 3,000th on a clean single in the next game.

 

In today’s Scripture lesson, Jesus says we should have faith without doubt. Belief has to be a part of our daily lives, with no doubt in what God and His Son can accomplish. One of the saddest passages in Scripture occurred when Jesus went back to His hometown of Nazareth. The people did not believe in Him: He was just the carpenter’s son! Because of their unbelief, Jesus did not do any miracles there. We have no record of Jesus ever returning to His hometown again. To experience answered prayer, we should believe and not doubt!

  1. Describe a time you doubted God.

  2. Describe a time you had faith in God.

  3. What was the difference in the outcome?

Paul Waner wanted there to be no doubts about his 3,000th hit. Jesus wants no doubt in our daily walk with Him. Faith can move a mountain and make a difference in our daily lives!
