January 29: Greatness

 

Scripture Lesson: Psalm 145:3

 

On this date in 1958, Brooklyn Dodger catcher Roy Campanella broke his neck when the car he was driving hit a telephone pole in an early morning accident. Campanella would spend the rest of his life paralyzed. At the time of the accident, Campanella had won 3 National League MVP awards and was the first black catcher in major league history. He was elected to the Hall of Fame in 1969. Campanella died on June 26, 1993 at the age of 71. Tommy Lasorda said, “I loved Roy Campanella. I loved him like a brother. I am going to miss him very much. As well as being a great baseball player, he was a great human being.”

 

David reminds us in our Scripture lesson today that the Lord is great and worthy of praise, so much so that no one can understand His greatness. When we look back at the greats of the game, we can look at great statistics: how many home runs they hit or how many batters they struck out. We can hear stories of their heroic episodes in the game, and their all-around reputation, for there are ways a player’s greatness can be measured. Isn’t it wonderful that God is so great we can’t even begin to understand just how great He is? Have you ever looked up at the sky on a clear night and tried to count the stars, or stood on a beach and watched the ocean roll in wave after wave? The Creator made all that and much more. God, with His indescribable greatness, loves us and wants a relationship with us!

  1. What are some things that show the greatness of God?

  2. How has He shown his greatness in your life?

  3. Take time right now to praise Him for his greatness.

There is no comparison between man’s greatness and the greatness of God. May we stand in awe of His greatness and love for us!
