Technology is a wonderful gift sometimes, isn’t it? Before we had cell phones (I am just old enough to remember a time without them), I was trying to find a friends house at night. It was in the middle of the country, and I was on a back road with no street lights or signs of any kind. I was fairly sure I had taken a wrong turn, and I had no map or any idea of where I was or what direction I was going. Without a GPS or a phone to call my friend, the only thing I could do was go back to the beginning, check my directions, and see what was wrong. I thought for sure that what was given to me was incorrect, but as I began the drive for the 2nd time, I realized I had missed a step and it was really my fault. I finally made it, and humbly joked about my mistake. I really needed a phone that night, and I don’t leave home without it now if I take a trip somewhere unfamiliar.
We talked to the children last month about how much we need Jesus in our lives. We need Him for comfort, security, love, friendship, and most importantly, for direction to Heaven. Without Him, we have no hope of reaching our final destination, and will be forever lost.
“Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
