I cleaned up the house. Then I did a load of laundry. Then I went to the office for a couple hours. Then I changed the oil in my truck.
It was the first time I have been under a truck since the last time I was literally under a truck. The first time since my accident. It was also the first time since then that I have found a feeling of achievement or accomplishment since then.
In the soul of man lies a question. It responds throughout his life. The question is: “am I capable?” Not ” m I capable to kill a deer with my bare hands or build a survival shelter?” Though these maybe questions some keen have. No the question is: “am I capable? Am I useful?”
10 For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2.10
It isn’t as if women don’t struggle with purpose, but I don’t think they do to the degree men do because of their natural disposition to working together and partnership. They are more about the journey than the destination. Men have a propensity toward competition and care more about the results than the path taken to achieve them.
This is one reason churches struggle with men. When the Church has no clear goal and no defined purpose, the men themselves feel porposeless within it.
Love the smell of 10w-40.
