In the days before GPS and Google Maps, a friend of mine (let’s say Carl) told how he mapped
out the shortest route on a rather long trip.
He used all the info he could get his hands on.
Despite his best efforts, he arrived only after quite a few stops and delays.
But one of the locals suggested to him a better route back home.
Carl remarked, “Isn’t that like life? We make our best decisions but the short cuts aren’t shorter after all.”
Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”
Having someone who knows the route makes all the difference.
And, I need to be willing to listen.
