There was a woman in Europe that set out on a ninety mile trip to pick up a friend at a train station. She set her GPS for directions to the train station. Three days later and many countries later she stopped a figured out she was lost. When asked why it took so long to figure out she was lost her reply was she was not paying attention. She was paying more attention to the scenery than listening to the GPS.
How about us?
Do we look around and see all the fun the “In crowd” is having and take their advice to join them in their drinking and partying and where do we end up? With hangovers, empty pockets and in bed with someone we don’t even know. Could that not lead us to addictions and diseases? Could that not destroy our lives?
There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death. Proverbs 14:12. New International Version
Where as, if we listen and follow to the advice in the Bible we will avoid these problems.
Oh sure we will look like geeks to the in crowd, but in the long run we have a loving relationship with Christ which far out shines anything the in crowd can offer. It may seem crazy to your friends and family but it will be smiled upon by our Heavenly loving wise Father.
The Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things John 14:26 New International Version
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Pryyand (Jesus my friend) for blessing us with the best instruction manual there ever was, is or will be. Please open my eyes to the wisdom to understand and follow its instructions for a rich and fulfilling life. I humbly give thanks for this blessing and ask for this blessing in Your wise name. Amen.
May the sweet sunshine of Jesus' precious love bless you today and every day.
