One afternoon, after hitting a bad shot, my favorite golfing buddy said, “I need to go to the practice range.” Without hesitation, I replied, “That’d be a waste of time, because you’d just be practicing doing it wrong.” He thought about it for a moment, and had to admit I had a valid point.
One of my firm rules with regard to golf, is I will never try to teach someone else how to do it. I barely know how to play the game myself, and even though sometimes I might appear to know what I’m doing, I don’t have a clue.
The same is true when it comes to God; I may sometimes appear to know a little bit about it, but the truth is, in the overall scheme of things, I know very little and I’m certainly no expert. My hope is to merely be a good partner and companion as we traverse—and hopefully enjoy—the fairways of life together.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; Proverbs 3:5
