In my much younger days, there was a board game that I loved to play. It was called Clue. The game was played with cards that displayed characters, weapons, and locations in a mansion. After the top card from each card type had been placed in an envelope in the middle of the board, the players moved tokens around the board and used deductive reasoning to determine what cards other players were holding. Once that was determined, a player could solve the mystery of who killed the victim, with what, and where.
Looking for clues is important in various areas of my life. I love giving Christmas gifts that the recipient really wants and would appreciate. Throughout the year, as I spend time with those on my gift list, I try to listen for clues and make note of potential gifts.
When we looked for a new home, my husband and I looked for clues in potential areas we were considering. Were there stores close by, were there nice sidewalks, were neighbors happy living there? These were clues that we would be happy living there.
When watching a movie or reading a book, I look for clues as to how the story will turn out.
Life is full of mysteries for which I seek clues. The most important mystery that confronted me was what happens when I die? Is there an Eternity? Where will I spend it? I found the clues to that mystery in the Bible, God’s Word. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. (John 3:16) When Jesus was talking to His disciples about the way to Heaven, in John 14:6, He said, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Paul reconfirmed this truth when he said to the Romans, “if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord’, and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9) No second guessing here. The clues make it rather clear.
When playing a game, searching for the right clue is entertainment. But when searching for answers to important life questions, it is a serious matter. If you have
questions about life and eternity, look for clues in the right place. God’s Word provides the answers to all of life’s mysteries.
