June 18: A Pretty Good Day

 

Scripture Lesson: 2 Thessalonians 1:11-12

 

On this date in 1961, Red Sox catcher Jim Pagliaroni had a pretty good day. After the Red Sox had trailed the Senators by seven runs going into the bottom of the ninth, Pagliaroni hit a walk off grand slam to win the first game of a double header 13-12. In addition to catching all 22 innings of the doubleheader, Pagliaroni hit another walk off home run in the bottom of the 13th to give the Red Sox a doubleheader sweep.

 

In today’s text, Paul describes what a pretty good day looks like for a Christian. Paul prayed that God would count the Thessalonians worthy of His calling and thus fulfill every good purpose for them, prompted by their faith. A good day for us as God’s children is to live lives worthy of Him, fulfilling our purpose and by serving others through acts of faith. When this happens, our actions bring glory to Jesus’ name.

  1. What does it take to have a pretty good day for the Lord?

  2. How do we live worthy of His calling?

  3. How can our service bring honor and glory to Him?

Pagliaroni had a pretty long but a pretty good day for the Red Sox. Let’s do all we can today and every day to have a pretty good day for the Lord.
