As the Crow flies
It has come to mean, "the shortest distance between 2 points" and when we use the idiom it usually relates to that. The irony of this saying is that crows don't actually fly as straight as they could - they usually fly in zigzags or arcs, looking for their food. Anyway, regardless of the reliability of this idiom, we still use it and we all understand what it means.
So, when it comes to following Jesus, why do often take the longer route? Why do we choose to go on our own path, when there is a direct route to Him. I think we would save ourselves a lot of time and heartache if we stayed closer to God, instead of marking our own tracks.
So, here is a challenge for all of us today. Take the quickest path to God - don't rely on your own agenda, but trust in God to meet your every need. Let's fly with the crows and rest in the presence of God.
Living in Grace
