Last night Lesley and I played bridge again. These days (it is rather a long time since I last played) the results and lots of analysis are available online almost immediately. One of the things that we noticed was that we had quite a lot of hands where we did very well, but also quite a lot where we did very badly.
This set me thinking, is it better to do that, or to do middlingly?
This of course translates into life. I am fairly phlegmatic, and as a student one of my friends pitied me because unlike him I would not experience the highs and lows in the same way.
Then there is the question of how this converts into ones faith life.
Well, what else would you expect me to say other than we are all “fearfully and wonderfully made“, and we need to live our life the way God has made us.
As for the bridge…. the jury is out – but we are investigating more!
