Tell me are you aware of the fact ads to how one can play dodgeball? The main motto is to avoid the balls being thrown at you by your opponent. Now you are recollecting the game somewhere in your mind!
Okay tell me how is this different form golf? In golf you hit a ball toward a very specific goal. But in that case, the hole in which you have to put the ball is located far away, that means that the goal is usually a long way away. Sometimes you can’t even see the goal but somewhere you are sure in your mind that if you hit the ball in the general direction, that you will eventually get there. Right? And what about the beach ball? There is no object to a game of beach ball. You just have to toss around from here and there without having a particular aim in your mind. And in the end the ball gets lost some where in the water! Tell me which kind of ball game do you want for your life?
5 If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him
6But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind.
7That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord;
8he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.
That means that when ever we ask for some kind of help from the God then at the same time we must have complete trust in God that we is willing and able to provide what we desire. And on the contrary when we don't show any kind of trust in the God, then we just tend to play beach ball. It may be fun for a while but, soon, we get away from or aim and motto that we get lost in the sea forever! If we don't have faith in God, then it means that we are just playing dodgeball. Rather than going for a particular aim in life, we are just trying to avoid the things that come at us. We waste all our time in just avoiding our troubles, rather rather than focusing on what we truly desire and what exactly our aim is!
