Scripture Lesson: Matthew 9:27-34
On this date in 1966, in a pre-game ceremony just prior to an
intra-squad contest in St. Petersburg, the Mets announced that former manager
Casey Stengel had been elected to the Hall of Fame. The 75-year-old Stengel
benefited from a new rule that makes any manager, umpire, or executive past the
age of 65 eligible to be elected the Hall just six months after retiring,
bypassing the traditional five year wait required for players. Stengel coined
the phrase,” The Amazing Mets.” In the Stengel years, the Mets did some amazingly
inept things on the diamond!
Today’s Scripture lesson is about just one of the amazing days of
Jesus’ earthly ministry. First, Jesus healed two blind men who showed faith in
his ability to heal them. Jesus touched their eyes, healed them, and told them to
keep quiet about what had happened. They could not keep silent, but went out
and spread the word all over the region. A little later, a mute man thought to
be possessed by demons was brought to Him. Once again, Jesus healed the man,
who immediately started speaking! What an amazing day in which Jesus brought
three men to a new life of health and wholeness. Our Lord is truly amazing!
