July 30-Age Is Just a Number
Scripture Lesson: Genesis 21:1-5
On this date in 1960 Yankee manager Casey Stengel celebrates his 70th birthday and quips, “Most people my age are dead at the present time.” The “Old Professor” and Connie Mack are the only managers at age 70 until Jack McKeown of the Marlins.
Today’s Scripture lesson is the birth of Isaac. God had promised to Abraham and Sarah a son. When Isaac was born both Abraham and Sarah were well beyond child bearing years. God blessed them in their old age with a son. Age is just a number, God can and will accomplish great things through each of us no matter what our age may be. All we have to do is be obedient and seek Him with our whole hearts. God has great plans for us no matter what our age. He is waiting for us to seek Him, love Him, and live for Him. When we do that watch out, great things are coming for His Kingdom and for us!
