We have a bridge in town that stands much lower than most bridges. As a result, many drivers crash their cargo vehicles into it. Despite multiple bright signs and flashing lights, this just happened again the other day. It's become a tragic topic of conversation in our community.
The driver is thankfully recovering. He told investigators that he was following his GPS.
How does this apply to my own life and my faith journey?
Are there mistakes that I make repeatedly despite the warning signs right in front of me? What is guiding me? Is it trustworthy? How well do I know myself and my limits? Regarding my day-to-day choices, am I so in tune to something else that I neglect to follow an obvious plea right in front of me that begs me to turn around?
"I instruct you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered; when you run, you will not stumble. Hold on to instruction, do not let it go; guard it well, for it is your life." Proverbs 4:11-13
