Life’s Traps

So you’re in one of life’s bunkers today? You hit it in there, now hit it out! (Jim Sheard and Wally Armstrong, golf writers)

This golf event illustrates one of life’s realities. The golfer doesn’t intend for his ball to land in a sand trip, but, yes, he is the one who hit it there. The wind may have carried it off course, but the wind won’t get it out of the trip. As in life, the troubles we find ourselves in are most often the result of our miscues. We got ourselves there; we’re the ones who have to get us back on course.

The righteous person faces many troubles, but the Lord comes to the rescue each time (Psalm 34:19).
