My sheep listen to my voice;
I know them, and they follow me.
                                                                              John 10:27 (NIV)

In our family, I am the navigator. Give me a map and I’ll get us there.

A few years ago we bought a GPS—a Ground-Positioning System. My life was made easier as I punched in our destination and hit GO. We could watch our progress on the screen, even noticing nearby lakes and rivers that we might not have seen from the road. When we came to a turn, the GPS’s female voice told us to turn either right or left.

We named our navigator Betty. We talk to Betty, yell at her occasionally, and even tease her by purposely driving in a circle in a parking lot, causing her to say: “Please return to designated route.” In spite of every detour, Betty perseveres and never gets cranky with us. Even if we’re on an isolated road, we know she’ll get us back where we belong.

We now have maps on our phones and computers. And I’ve often been thankful for a map in a shopping mall. Where is that food court anyway?

We take direction well. We seek direction.

So let’s not forget about the best navigator there is: Jesus. He provides each of us with His own GPS: a God-Positioning System. He is always there to guide us. We can talk to Him, yell at Him, and even tease Him by driving our lives in circles. No matter what

we do or what detour we take, God perseveres and never gets cranky with us. Even if we’re on an isolated road, we know He will get us back where we belong.

Never—ever—leave home without Him.
