Scripture Lesson: Proverbs 15:30
On this date in 2010 with their 3-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves in Game 4 of the NLDS at Turner Field, the San Francisco Giants advanced to the NLCS to play the Phillies. After the last out of the game, the Giants’ players come on to the field to salute and cheer for the opposing manager Bobby Cox, who is retiring at after 29 years in the dugout.
The writer of Proverbs reminds us today that a cheerful look brings joy to the heart and good news gives health to the bones. It is important to celebrate the good things of life. The Giants players in the midst of their joy stopped to than someone who had given so much to the game, Bobby Cox. God brings special times to us in our lives in order for us to be able to celebrate great things for others. I bet God was smiling in heaven when the Giants did just that!
