July 28: Sameness

Scripture Lesson: Romans 11:33-36

On this date in 1963, Dick Ellsworth of the Chicago Cubs struck out Cardinals left-fielder Stan Musial three times in the Cubs 5-1 victory at Wrigley Field. It was the only time in his 22-year career that Musial was whiffed three times in a game: a span of 3,026 games. That is consistency.

The verses we read from Romans today are a hymn of praise to God. As Paul wrote to the Church in Rome, he was so overcome by the greatness of God that he couldn’t help but burst forth into a hymn of praise. Verse 36 is the key verse for us today: “For from Him and through Him, and to Him are all things. To Him be the glory forever! Amen.” These words remind us of the sameness of God. It was by Him and through His power that all things came into being. God is the source of all good things. We should rejoice and praise His name for his sameness and goodness to us all. That is consistency.

  1. How is God the same day by day?

  2. Why should we praise Him for what He has done?

  3. How does God show his consistency to us?

God is the very same from the beginning of time through today, He is indeed the same and He loves us so very much! Praise Him for His consistent love.

I remember sitnitg fireside, kerchief firmly tied and listening to Mike and Snow and other counselors telling tells of perseverance, leadership and accomplishment. I think we left this ceremony in silence all the way back to Cub Row No small feat for a 10-year-old. Knowing that Tucker sits in the same ceremony tomorrow somehow brings me closer to him, to our family and to our history. I miss him like crazy during these three weeks but am amazed at the change in him while away. More confident. More sturdy. But, also, somehow more sensitive and kind.
