Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?
Hockey Chat: What if you were to get to spend a month with Wayne Gretzky (or Martin Brodeur for you goalies) and they spent day and night giving you tips and coaching? That would make you pretty great. But if the month was over and you went back to playing your way and forgetting everything you had been taught, losing your talents you had been just gained. It would seem foolish. Like a waste of a great opportunity.
Life Lesson: We spend time in church. Some of us spend time reading the Bible. But when we leave the building or close the book, we go back to trying to get through life our own way. Do we actually think we would know better than the one who created it all? Do we actually think we could do better than the one who overcame it all? To achieve our goals in life we need to turn to the one who has already been there, beat that, and will always be here for us. Christ can give us the peace, security, and hope in what we strive for.
