September 1-The Biggest Fan
Scripture Lesson: John 12:1-8
Today is the birthday of baseball’s number one fan, my daughter Laura. Even though her brother was 4 ½ years younger, Laura made as many of his baseball games as possible. She would change her schedule to see her brother play. A huge fan of the North Carolina Tar Heels, the Baltimore Orioles, and any team her brother played for, Laura is a very devoted fan. She loves the game, but more important she loves her brother. Thank you Laura for the love you freely give to each of us! You make a Dad proud and blessed to have a daughter like you! I love you very much!
Today’s Scripture lesson is about a sister who also loves her brother. Mary has just seen Jesus raise her brother Lazarus from the dead. As Jesus is teaching in the home she shares with her brother and sister, Martha, Mary shows her love and devotion to Jesus by pouring expensive perfume on his feet and wiping them with her hair. This act of love and devotion, I believe, is her way to show Jesus how much she loves Him and appreciates what he did for her brother Lazarus.
