Devotional Scripture: John 14
"I am the way and the truth and the life." - John 14:6
When I travel to someone's home or go on a trip . . . I usually print out a map from my computer, or have the location "pinned" on the Maps app on my smart phone.
Why? Well, I don't want to be late, and I don't want to get lost. Simple enough.
Actually, it's more than that.
I don't like to ask for directions.
It's not what you think. This isn't about "men never want to ask for directions."
Well . . . maybe it is.
Here's what usually happens when I ask someone for directions.
"Well, let me think a minute . . . I think you take this road here, and go down across the next two intersections . . . and then around the first part of the S-Curve past the 2nd light . . . or maybe it's the 3rd light . . . and as you just start to come around the first corner you take the 2nd right . . . or is it the 1st left? And then you turn right again by the old grocery store . . . or is it the drug store? Well anyway, at the next corner you'll see the Post Office off in the distance up the hill, but before you get to it, hang a right and look for a white mailbox . . . turn right at the next corner, and then you drive . . . ."
You know how it is . . . dont you.
You do if you were honest.
In my case, nine times out of ten, I get lost, then get mad at myself for not having the right map or not having any "bars" on my cell phone . . . and then had to ask someone else for directions . . .
A few times I turned around and went home . . . at least I would have if I could have found my way back!!!!
However, on a couple of occassions when I have asked for directions . . . the response has been, "Follow me, I'll take you there."
Those acts of sincere kindness are always greatly appreciated.
If you are looking for God in a special way this Lenten season, then look to Jesus. He doesn't bother with directions or a map. Instead, he will just take you to God.
There are 18 days of Lent left . . . Jesus will lead you the rest of the way around any obstacles you haven't yet cleared away on your path to Easter.
God's grace still amazes me . . . ><>
