And then there is the wonderful world of auto mechanics, of which I know nearly nothing. I’m the last person you should call if your car ever breaks down. If it wasn’t broken before, it will be by the time I’m done with it.
I really enjoy playing the game of golf, but I never know what to expect from one day to the next. Sometimes I play respectable. Other times you would think I had never touched a club in my life. I’m telling you, it’s enough to give a
person a complex.
I’m a lousy cook. I barely survived freshman algebra. I have never beaten Sheri in a game of ping pong. I went hunting once and wasn’t invited to go again. I’ve never been asked to sing a solo in my life. Need I say more?
But the truth of the matter is it doesn’t really bother me that I’m not very good at those things. None of those things listed above appear on the priority list of my life – well, maybe golf!
But there are some things in this life that I do want to get right. Two things really matter to me. First, I want to be the best Christian I can possibly be. I really want to get my relationship with God right. The other thing that matters to me is my family. To be the kind of husband and father God wants me to be is a high priority in my life.
So what if I cannot fix the dishwasher, or rebuild an engine like my brother-in-law? So what if I cannot cook? So what if my wife beats me mercilessly at ping pong? If I can be a faithful man of God and a loving husband and father, I will consider my life a success. Those are the things that matter most to me.
