Bon Voyage for now

Can you image sitting on a large ship waiving to a lot of people on the deck below that you do not know, but feel it is the right thing to do, why everyone else is doing it. Now if we use this as an example in our lives, how many times have we done something, not thinking about it, but just doing it because everyone else is. I know for me that my life was built around other peopleís decisions of what I should or shouldnít do, so I found it necessary to do what everyone did, no questions asked. When I became a Christian though, the Lord put in my heart that exact moment that I would be a seeker of truth. You canít be a seeker if you donít ask why. Hence began a wonderful journey of opposition, mostly against people who could not answer questions like, why are we doing this? I found that breaking through the truth of unanswered questions really made a difference whether I would do what others did without knowing why. So as I stand on that ship, I donít wave at the people I donít know, I let others do what pleases them and I follow the Lord, remembering always to be an example for those who are shipwrecked.

Very good analogy!

I never would have thought of waving "Bon Voyage" as such a metaphor for life. This piece could be broken into two or three smaller paragraphs for easier reading. Thanks for your thoughtful article.
