In every arena of life there are some basic elementary teachings that we need to remind ourselves of each day. If we don't then we begin to drift away and before we know it we do not hit the mark.

Golf has some basic rock solid elementary foundational principles. As a golfer you must keep your head down and keep your eye on the ball. It's sounds so easy, yet golfer after golfer has struggled to do this, because they want to see where the ball is going too soon.

This week I followed Isaiah around in a golf tourney and snapped off a few photos of him hitting the ball, as you can see his head is down. I bet I have said that too him 1000 times over the years. And I have been reminded myself a million times too. While, it is so basic to the game of golf to do this, it is so easy to do just the opposite and to end up far away from the intended landing zone.

I wonder if you need to return to some of the elementary truths in your walk with God, so that you hit the target and find yourself back on the piece of real estate God had in mind, instead of far away from where he wants you?

Hebrews 5:11-12 We have much to say about this, but it is hard to explain because you are slow to learn. In fact , though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you the elementary truths of God's Word all over again.
