September 25-Age Does Not Matter
Scripture Lesson: Psalm 92:12-15
On this date in 1965 at a reported age of 60, Satchel Paige becomes the oldest player ever to appear in a Major League game. Pitching for the Kansas City A’s, he blanks the Red Sox for three innings giving up only one hit to Carl Yastrzemski.
Our verses today refer to the flourishing of those who live righteous lives. The righteous will flourish like a palm tree and like one of the majestic cedars of Lebanon. Because they are planted in God’s house they will flourish. Even in old age they will flourish and bear fruit. We will be productive for God’s Kingdom bearing fruit as long as we live righteous lives. When we live for Him we can produce fruit for Him! We are to live for Him until He calls us home. God has great plans for us to serve Him.
1. What does it mean to live a righteous life?
2. What does it mean to you to flourish in God’s work?
3. Describe the feelings you have when you accomplish something for His Kingdom.
I am grateful God wants us to serve Him and that He does not care about the date on our birth certificate.
