Par for the Course!

In golf, you need to know the language. Every hole within a golf course is associated with a Par, or the number of strokes set as a standard for a specific hole or a complete course. So, if you are approaching hole #3 with a Par 4 attached to it, you have 4 strokes to make par on that hole. So, what happens when you reach the hole with a different number? Then you hear words like;

Birdie – which means that you reach the hole in 3 strokes (par 4) or 1 under

Eagle – you reached the hole in 2 strokes or 2 under.

Bogey – you reached the hole in 5 strokes or 1 stroke over.

Double Bogey – you reached the hole in 6 strokes or 2 over. Bogeys are then added based on the number of strokes over, triple Bogey, etc.

The beautiful thing about golf is that as long as you keep playing you will eventually finish the course.

You may not finish the course of life with the best record, but please finish!

2 Timothy 4:6-8 For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.

Lord, help me to fight a good fight, keep the faith, and finish my course!
