Wait a minute. Do you mean to tell me that even if my game is not very strong, I can be judged by my potential ability so that I can be on equal terms with my opponent? Who knew golf had so much compassion?
Yes, I definitely needed some compassionate handicaps to get through my day. It has been a tough week anyway, certainly I’m due for an easier day, right?
Fortunately, even though I don’t play golf there is One who can grant me handicaps. One who sees my potential ability and not only cuts me some slack but lends me His strength.
He paid the ultimate price so that we can all play on equal terms. So that we can have that extra bit of help when we need it.
So even though I felt like I was starting way behind when I got out of bed today, I actually had a pretty good day. The Lord had compassion on me. He saw the potential I had today based on if I had started out at my top ability, and He made the effort I was able to put into my day be enough, which put me on a more level playing ground with whatever came my way.
I wonder if there’s golf in heaven?
