You have no map!!

I heard a story about a friend who was hiking one weekend when he came across a group of hikers who were lost. They asked him for directions and he tried to explain which route they needed to go on. When they seemed a little confused he asked to see their map, so he could point out the route for them. It was at this moment that he was shocked to realise that they had NO MAP on them.

While this may be ok if you are taking a little amble on simple tracks, but when hiking in difficult terrain, you should ALWAYS take a map. And so,it got me thinking - how many people do we know of who are going through life with NO MAP? They have no idea where they are going and are feeling totally confused.

In my experience, following the ways of Jesus have helped me to know which path to take. It is not an easier path, by any means, but it is good to know which direction to head in.

Thought: Are you trying to bash your own path through life or are you following the path that Christ has called you to walk on?

Isaiah 59:8 "They don’t know where to find peace or what it means to be just and good. They have mapped out crooked roads, and no one who follows them knows a moment’s peace..."

Living in Grace
