Jesus and Golf

Whether you think Jesus is your Lord and Saviour or just a nice man in sandals from history I can't help but laugh when I am confronted with his sense of humor. This statement in the Bible makes me laugh:

"Why do you see the speck in your neighbor's eye, but do not notice the log in your own eye? Or how can you say to your neighbor, 'Let me take the speck out of your eye,' while the log is in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the log out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your neighbor's eye."

I had a one sided conversation recently and this verse kept coming up in my mind. I sat silent and listened knowing that he had a long in his own eye.....or was it a speck in his and a log in mine?

Golf was fun yesterday but the heat was exhausting. Note to self...wait until the back nine to pop a beer.

I like that!

I thought you were going to say you had found a part where Jesus played golf! The Miracle of the ball that bounced out of the bunker and into the hole!

I thought it was a plank instead of a log. Maybe that's just different versions of the bible.

I was always offended that Jesus referred to some females as "Woman!" Maybe I'm taking him too seriously. Maybe he was just being cool.

Terri - I think you have to bear in mind who translated the bible into English and the values that they held dear...

Did Peter ever tell you his Jesus and golf joke?

It's really funny!

I'm a fan of your blog and just started one of my own a couple of weeks ago. It's still seeking it's identity. I'd be honored if you would stop by for a visit sometime.
