The Way

I like to go for walks. Since I am visually impaired, I usually walk with my guide dog. Even when my dog is leading me, there are times when I become confused and don’t know what direction I am walking. That can be frightening!
Several years ago my husband bought me a talking compass. But the compass did not work well. Often it told me the wrong direction, so I could never trust the compass to show me the right way.
Sometimes we need advice. Maybe we ask a friend or read a book. But we cannot always be sure that we are receiving the right information. The best source for help is God’s Word. The Bible tells us how to live and how to follow Jesus. In verse 6b of our Bible Reading today, Jesus said, “I am the way. I am the truth and the life. The only way to the Father is through me.”
The Bible is our compass in life. If we follow its directions, we will find salvation through Jesus. Have you read your Bible yet today?
