Years ago on a variety show, a guest appeared that was a body builder. As he entered the stage with his huge muscular body the crowd went crazy as the body builder began to flex his muscles and show his power. The first question asked of him was this: “What do you use all those muscles for?” Without answering, the body builder again stood up and began flexing his muscles while the crowd cheered wildly.


A second time, the question was asked, “What do you do with those muscles?”

Again, the body builder flexed his muscles and the crowd became almost ecstatic.


After asking three times, “What do you do with all those muscles?” the body builder just sat in silence and had no answers.


The man was all power but his power had no purpose other than to show off and bring attention to himself.
