Reading: Psalm 119: 105
"Truck Stories and Other Tales Which May or May Not Involve Vehicles." That's the title of a book that a friend of mine and I want to write. We often remark that we have so many stories that revolve around riding in cars, transporting canoes and other equipment, and other activities in or around vehicles.
When you think of it, we do spend a lot of time in our cars. You may have to commute to work, you may go on a cross-country vacation or you may just use your vehicle to run around town. Whatever the case, cars are relied upon to provide us transportation and get us to where we are going.
But what do we rely upon to get us where we are going in our spiritual lives? As the psalmist says, "Thy Word is a lamp unto our feet and a light unto our path." Men are frequently accused of not asking for directions when they are traveling. Often I have heard them accused of being stubborn. Hopefully all people are not stubborn when it comes to asking for direction in their life. Should not that direction come from the Word of God? It is the light which will lead our paths as we travel through our life on earth. And, unlike the gas station attendant's directions, the holy directions will not lead us wrong.
Don't be afraid to ask for directions-- especially if the directions come from the good book! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
Closing: Watch this video of the song, "Thy Word." Amy Grant also reminds us that we all need direction in our lives!
