I once witnessed a man so frustrated with three consecutive golf shots, he threw his entire bag of clubs into a pond. He returned moments later, waded out into the pond and found his bag. After retrieving his car keys, he proceeded to throw the bag of clubs further out into the pond.
The manifestation of the Spirit in life of the Body is a lot like the game of golf. Whether you are a golfer or not this metaphor may bring into sharper focus some of Paul's teaching about the gifts of the Spirit. Have we tossed the entire "bag" of Spiritual gifts into the pond? Or do we practice like the pros to shoot par?
If nothing else, it ought to be entertaining.
