''It is the Lord your God you must follow, and him you must revere. Keep his commands and obey him; serve him and hold fast to him.''  Deuteronomy 13;4

             There have been times in my life where I loved the need for speed feeling, like driving, but then there were times for the slowness of a snail's pace, like walking.  No matter what our speed is, if we are going in the wrong direction, we are still lost.
             I think there are those with map skills and those who just need to use it as a tablecloth in the car.  The map and navigation by the passenger can be a catalyst to road rage, so beware and turn on the GPS.
            Who is your guide in life?  The Bible is our map with directions.  We often want to trust ourselves, but that is foolishness in action.  We need to slow down and see if our thoughts are in agreement with His Word.  Many of our mistakes are due to our rush to respond without thinking it thru first.
            May we all consider not only where we are headed, but where we have been.
