True North

I read the book “Young Man and the Sea” to my class recently, and this paragraph struck me:

Trust your compass. That’s another thing my dad was always saying. Trust your compass because you can’t trust your instincts in the dark or the fog. Without a compass a man will steer himself in a circle, nine times out of ten. Give up on the compass and you’re lost for sure.

In Ecuador, they call the correct direction for life true north.  Jesus is our true north and it’s soooo, soooo easy to forget. Trust your compass. Trust His Word.

Jesus told him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.  John 14:6a
