If folks can put a man on the moon, why can’t they make a ball point pen that writes (every time)?
When I buy groceries and begin to write a check – the pen doesn’t write, or the ink skips where you can’t read the writing. It’s always been amazing to me, that the more simple a thing is, the more complicated man makes it.
Do you think that’s the reason why folks seemingly can’t understand the Bible — because they make something that is relatively simple (the gospel) complicated?
Back in the 1980’s, I used to be an avid fan of the Dallas Cowboys, when Tom Landry was their coach, but no more. Like most other sports, the game is now motivated by mostly money; players no longer playing for the sheer enjoyment of the game.
About the only game I enjoy watching with any interest, is golf, the gentleman’s game. I played golf in college and learned that the game challenges your whole being. Not only do you have to be in good physical condition, but you must be able to think about and analyze every shot you make. The most challenging part of the game for me was the putting aspect of the game.
It’s not too difficult to get the ball to the green, but getting that little white ball into that very small hole, is a very large challenge – one that takes great patience in achieving.
In playing the game of golf, you learn a great deal about yourself and your capabilities, both physically and mentally.
