Thoughts and Things

A man was traveling to a great city . He had a map in the seat beside him , but he was so sure of his navigational skills , that he never even gave the map a second look . The trip was so easy at first that the man was certain he could take a side road , do a little sight seeing , and then get back on the main highway and continue on . Once he got on the side road he saw many wonderful sights . Unfortunately , there were many more side roads branching off from that one . Curious to see what lay down each road , the man drove down each and every one . To the man's disappointment , all these roads were full of potholes and ruts that he had to keep swerving to avoid , there were no wonderful , fascinating things to see here . Eventually the man became disoriented and couldn't find which road he needed to take to reach the main highway . He occasionally glanced at the map beside him , but was sure he could find his own way , so he never picked it up . After a while the man was just driving aimlessly around and was beginning to panic . Time was running out and he was no closer to the great city than when he started . During all this time the man never opened the map beside him . Finally , the sun started to set and the man broke down crying , " Ok , I admit it , I'm confused and cant find my way . I need help ." Glancing down at the seat , the man saw the map and opened it up .Inside , the man found the way to the great city . The map showed the way clearly for him to see . It also warned of the dangerous conditions of the side roads he had traveled and how it was easy to become confused on their winding ways . Travelers were encouraged to avoid these roads at all costs . Looking at the map , the man realized how foolish he had been to think he could take such a great journey without relying on the map's clear directions . Had he bothered to read it during his travels , he would have known how to avoid the misleading side roads and his journey would have been easier and less stressful . We are so often like that man . We think we can travel on life's journey without assistance , but the truth of the matter is , the Word of God is our roadmap and we need to be sure to read it every step of the way along our journey to avoid the misleading side roads of life . ~ Lisa
