When they got to the first tee, the pro pointed to the green and told the man to hit the ball onto the green, as close to the flag as he could get it. So the fellow approached the ball and swung a golf club for the first time ever.
Incredibly, the ball landed on the green, only a few inches away from the hole. The pro was so amazed he didn’t know what to say. The student asked, “What do I do next?”
“Actually, you are supposed to hit the ball in the hole where the flag is.”
“Well, why didn’t you tell me that in the first place?!”
No matter what we do in life, we need to strive for excellence. The Bible urges us to do the best we can in order to honor the Lord.
“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…”–Ecclesiastes 9:10.
