August 1: A Productive Day

Scripture Lesson: Matthew 14:13-21

On this date in 1972, Nate Colbert became the second player to hit five home runs in a doubleheader. Amazingly, as an eight-year-old Cardinal fan he had been present when Stan Musial accomplished the feat for the first time, at Sportsman’s Park in 1954. The Padre slugger also broke Musial’s record for the most RBIs in a doubleheader with 13, and set a Major League record with 23 total bases.

In our text for today, Jesus had been teaching a large crowd at some distance from the nearest village. As evening came, the disciples wanted to send the crowds away so they could go and procure food, but Jesus told the disciples that they should provide a meal for the multitude. After a brief search, the disciples could only locate five small loaves of bread and two fish. Jesus told the disciples to seat the people in groups. He then blessed the food and broke the bread. By the time Jesus finished breaking the bread and fish into portions, there was enough to feed 5,000 men (they didn’t even count the women and children) and to collect twelve baskets full of leftovers.

  1. Why do you think Jesus choose to teach in such remote place?

  2. Describe a time you helped someone and had a productive day.

  3. Why is it important to give of ourselves for others?

Jesus accomplished a lot on that day, healing the sick and feeding those who had gathered. When we serve others it is always a productive day!

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing many months of hard work due to no data backup.
Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another
platform. I would be great if you could point me
in the direction of a good platform.
