A Dull Ax

22 Oct

It’s Monday morning, after one of the roughest weekends in a while.  Two funerals and three worship services since Friday, and I can tell the ol’ ax is dull.  It’s like I’m hitting the tree, but nothing is happening.  NO, I’m not about to go the the Post Office with an assault rifle and do bad things, so no texts or calls necessary here, please!!  I’m not out on a ledge … just knowing the blade is a little dull today.

Eccelsiastes 10:10 has this to day about that topic:  “Using a dull ax requires great strength, so sharpen the blade. That’s the value of wisdom; it helps you succeed.”  (NLT)  Gonna try to find a few ways to sharpen the blade on the fly this week.  Hope it works!!

Ironically, I showed the youth a video on Wednesday about a hillbilly husband and wife.  She have him a new chainsaw as a birthday present.  He tried to use the chainsaw to cut a tree and several other things, and it wasn’t working out for him so well.  When he was finally exhausted and laid out in a lawn chair, his wife picked it up, CRANKED IT, and started cutting a tree like nobody’s business.  And it all worked out because she knew how to apply the POWER to that saw.

Hmmm…  maybe I need to watch that video again ….
