Our ancestors had to go to pretty extreme measures to keep from getting lost. They erected monumental landmarks, laboriously drafted detailed maps and learned to read the stars in the night sky.
Things are much, much easier today. For less than $100, you can get a pocket-sized gadget that will tell you exactly where you are on Earth at any moment. As long as you have a GPS receiver and a clear view of the sky, you’ll never be lost again.
None of us enjoy being lost; it is such a helpless feeling. It also has a certain amount of shame and or humiliation attached to it — well, if we are to be totally honest — it’s actually pride with a capital P. Have you ever noticed that those of us who have a GPS — whether it is on our phones or we mount it on our dash in our cars — love the thought of having a GPS for traveling distant places that we are not familiar with, or we’ve been there before but we are not comfortable just going by memory, so we put the address of our destination in our GPS as prompted. Upon entering the information requested, we sit back ever so comfortable, with all our confidence and trust in the GPS.
But sometimes during our journey we veer off the designated path; and the lovely lady’s voice on our GPS says to us “Rerouting, turn around and get back on such and such road” At this point we get a little frustrated with the lady on the GPS, and we begin to talk back to her, letting her know that she doesn’t know what she is talking about, and no matter how many times she say’s “ rerouting” we ignore her and may even turn the GPS off, and we keep going the way we are going, voicing the fact that. “We should never put all our confidence in mechanical man- made objects anyway” This always soothes the fact that we have no idea where we are or where we are going.
This reminds me of life, sometimes we have no idea where we are or where we are going, and we dare not ask anybody, then they will know that we are lost. So we keep up a charade for a while until we come to the conclusion that we need help.
When we come to this conclusion in life, all we have to do is just what www.foxtraxgps.com says, “get a clear view of the sky” and call on Jesus for help-he is our Global Positioning System (GPS) — ask him for directions in life, be willing to receive and obey his instructions, you can trust him, he will never lead you the wrong way. And you’ll never be lost again.
