This past Christmas I got two great gifts, I got a GPS and a NIV.
The GPS is a TOMTOM and if I use it, I should never get lost and I should always be able to find the address of town that I am looking for. This GPS even claims to be able to get me there using the fastest or the shortest route possible, depending on which choices I make. If I get off the path that the GPS has set for me, a friendly voice will try and help guide me back on path. I now have no excuse for getting lost.
The NIV is a new Thompson Chain Reference Bible, the old one is about to fall apart. If I use my new NIV I should be able to navigate through any situation in life and still arrive at my ultimate destination. When I leave the path, The Word can guide me back to the way of God. I have no excuse for getting lost, I only need to listen to the voice of God as He speaks to me through The Word.
Yes, after this Christmas I have no excuses for being lost.
"For since the creation of the world God's invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse."
