Scripture Lesson: 1 Chronicles 28:9-10
On this date in 2009 prior to the start of the 8th inning at Comerica Park, a small boy races to the pitcher’s mound and grabs a baseball intended for Tigers reliever Brandon Lyon. The youngster is helped back into the stands on the visitors’ side. He is allowed to keep the ball after a discussion between the boy’s uncle and ballpark security. The discussion reveals that the six-year old boy misunderstood a suggestion to go to the railing to try to get a ball from one of the Blue Jays players.
These verses from 1Chronicles are the words that King David gives to his son and heir Solomon. He reminds his son to follow God with his whole heart and a willing mind. God will search every heart and will see the motives behind his thoughts and actions. God today is still interested in our serving Him with our whole hearts and minds. God also wants us to serve Him with the right motives. God wants us to seek Him and to do the work He has in store for us to accomplish for Him. We can only do the work god has for us when we follow Him with every ounce of our being and do so with the right motives!
1. What are our motives for serving God? Remember he knows.
2. Why must we serve God with all our being?
3. Why does God deserve our best when we serve Him?
When we serve God with all our hearts and minds with the right motives in our hearts great things can be accomplished for the Kingdom.
