Once there was a group of men--a young hot-blooded guy named Joe and a number of older men--clearing a jungle. Joe was very hard working. He even worked through his break time. He complained that the older men were wasting time, taking so many breaks to drink and chat, As time went by, Joe noticed that even though he worked through his break time and hardly took a rest, he was accomplishing no more than the older men did. It was as if they worked through their break time, too. So he decided to work harder. Unfortunately the results were even worse. One day, one of the older men invited Joe for a drink during their break time. Joe refused and said he had no time for idealness! Then the old man smiled to him and said "You're wasting your time chopping trees without sharpening your axe. Sooner or later you will give up from exhaustion." Suddenly Joe realized that during break times while the older men were having a chat, they were also sharpening their axes! And that's how they could chop faster than he could while spending less time!
If our spiritual lives are going to be effective and productive, then we must take time to sharpen our spiritual axe. Some of the ways to do that is through a daily quiet time with the Lord, Sunday School, worshiping with other believers, etc. The writer of Hebrews told his readers that some believers had become "dull of hearing." When walking with Christ becomes just a routine, dullness is inevitable. Spiritual sharpness comes when Jesus is your life. Keep the axe sharp!
