I love this story. Sometimes we think that all we need to do to endure to the end is keep working hard--same routine, same steps, same motions. We forget that we need to finetune ourselves too. We need to sharpen our axes--this can be symbolic of developing a talent or learning new things or repenting or seeking to do the will of God continually. Whatever it may be in your situation, there is a way to sharpen your axe today and perhaps you can´trecognize it, but you have a "wise boss" too, your Heavenly Father. He knows exactly what you need to be successful and efficient and complete just like this lumberjack. If you ask him, he will tell you how to sharpen your axe!
Have a great week
