Is there anything more manly in life
than welding metal scraps into artwork? Think about it. It involves hard things, when the heat is on. And it’s up to us to put it all together.
It sounds like a typical day in the life of the man to me. Because that’s what
real men do. We solve problems. (crash) Or at least we try. Hey guys, Robbie Sondag here with a little Godly advice for living a more meaningful life.
Whenever I see a piece of welded metal art with all its seemingly random pieces
of metal scraps, it reminds me of Romans 8:28 where it says, “And we know that in
all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to his purpose. Now I know that a lot of guys avoid God because they
feel like they’ve messed up too much, or that they’ve got to get their act
together before they start coming to church or praying or anything like that.
But if we take a closer look at some of the so-called heroes of the faith, we see
that they all had flaws . Moses had anger issues. Joseph was abused. Elijah was
suicidal. Gideon was afraid. Samson was a womanizer. David was an adulterer and a
murderer, Jonah ran from God. Peter denied even knowing Jesus three times. And Paul originally persecuted Christians. And the list goes on and on. And when I think of
the ragtag bunch of unsung heroes that Jesus chose to be his disciples, we’ve got like a tax collector, a zealot, a bunch of fishermen. I wonder why in the world
didn’t he pick a few more prominent or successful people to be part of his
A-team? It seems that God enjoys using flawed people to create something
beautiful. And while this isn’t an incentive for wrongdoing, it does give us
comfort to know that God can still use us despite our mistakes. He’s way more
concerned about our faithfulness than he is our accomplishments. So if you ever
feel like you’ve you’re not worthy because of your screw-ups, then just
remember, God doesn’t call the equipped, he equips the called. If you consider
yourself a follower of Jesus, guess what, my friend? You have been called.
So yes there is something more manly in life than welding metal scraps into
artwork. It’s allowing God to use the scraps of your life to create a masterpiece. Hey if you’d like a weekly dose of humor,
