July 23: Unusual

Scripture Lesson: 1 Kings 6:1-7

On this date in 1975, at Pittsburgh’s Three Rivers Stadium, Frank Taveras was picked off first base in an unusual play. After getting a big lead, trying to get a good jump on a sacrifice bunt, the Pirate shortstop was picked off when the catcher threw the ball to first base. The surprising thing is that Phillies right fielder Jay Johnstone covered first base to complete the 2-9 play.

Today’s Scripture lesson relates another unusual event. Elisha and some of the prophets were going down by the Jordan River to cut some trees. As one of them was chopping away, the head of his ax flew off the handle and into the river, sinking to the bottom. The workman was horrified because he had borrowed the ax, and iron tools were quite valuable back then. Elisha asked where the ax-head had gone into the river. He then cut a stick and threw it into the river at that spot. The iron ax-head floated to the surface, the text says, and the man was able to retrieve it. He must have felt extremely relieved and grateful.

  1. Describe a time when God came through for you when you needed Him the most.

  2. How did it make you feel?

  3. Why is it important to be ready to help someone in need?

God cares for us by being there for us when we need Him. He often sends people to help us when we need the help. We should always be ready to be used by God to help others even in unusual circumstances.

Its such as you learn my thoughts! You seem to grasp a lot about this,
like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I think that you simply could do with a few percent to
power the message house a bit, but instead of that, this
is wonderful blog. A great read. I will certainly be back.
