Golfer Russell Knox is not known for hitting the ball a long way off the tee. He came in at number 120 on the PGA Tour last year in driving distance. Knox comments about this: “I played with Bubba (Watson) a couple of years ago and I almost cried. I was like, if this guy hits it straight I might as well try to caddie for him. But the reality is, distance is maybe 10% of golf. If those guys hit it so much further than me, there’s obviously part of my game that is better than theirs or I’d never beat them. I need to focus on those parts.”
Christians don’t have the same gifts and abilities. Like golfers, some of us excel at certain aspects, while others are better at doing something else.
Don’t judge your own service by what others can do. Just focus on what you do best.
