July 14: Second Chance

Scripture Lesson: Acts 15:36-41

On this date in 2000, John Olerud had a game-tying double disallowed because first base umpire Jim Wolf had called time. The Mariners’ first baseman promptly hit a three-run homer, helping the Mariners beat the Padres 7-5. Olerud made the best of his second chance.

Our Scripture lesson today tells the story of one of the Bible’s most memorable second chances. Paul and Barnabas were getting ready to go on their second missionary journey. Barnabas wanted to bring along John Mark, who had left them midway through their first journey. Paul did not wish to take John Mark, presumably because thought him unreliable, but Barnabas believed in Mark so much that he wanted to give him a second chance. Their disagreement was so intense that Paul and Barnabas parted ways. Paul took Silas and Barnabas took John Mark. John Mark later was reconciled with Paul, and is widely believed to have written the Gospel of Mark. This may not have happened if Barnabas had not given Mark a second chance.

  1. Describe a time you were given a second chance.

  2. Is there someone who needs a second chance from you?

  3. Why is it Christ-like to give a second chance?

God gave each of us a second chance when Jesus died on the cross for our sins and mistakes. There could be no better reason for us to give someone a second chance!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of
completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced
but it looks like a lot of it is popping
it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help protect
against content from being ripped off? I'd certainly appreciate it.
