Reading: Acts 26: 13
“It isn’t a trip without a problem.” Often, those that I am traveling with remind of that when something out of the ordinary happens on a journey. When you take a road trip, you often have to deal with unusual circumstance; things that you did not plan for.
I took a trip once with a bunch of people. We were going to visit a photography studio. Our van only held 12 people and we had 13 on the trip. So, I sat on a small cooler between the two front seats. It wasn’t a bad ride, but every time we saw a police car, I ducked so we wouldn’t get in trouble.
We had a good time on that trip, and to my recollection, nothing really went wrong. The memorable thing about it was sitting on the cooler. We even managed to sing along with the radio to pass the time on our travel.
Mary and Joseph took a trip to Bethlehem and they did have a problem. They did not have a place to stay. But God provided for them and showed them to a stable where Mary delivered the Christ Child. Just as God helped Mary and Joseph, God helps us on our trip sin life, too. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
