GPS: God’s Positioning System

“Follow me.” – Matthew 9:9

“I don’t understand why it wants us to go to that route,” my husband said, frustrated about the GPS (Global Positioning System) we were using while we were traveling. The GPS is a helpful tool that provides driving directions to our destination. It gives us the option of taking a shorter route or one that will bring us to our destination at a faster time. But it can’t detect if the roads are rough in those routes. This is why my husband isn’t too crazy about the GPS especially when he feels he knows a better way of getting us safely to our destination.
Unlike the GPS, God’s guidance is foolproof. Through the Church’s teachings and Scripture, He shows us how we are to live our lives. At the same time, He gives us the freedom to choose the path we want to take. Along the way, we may encounter challenges that could lead us into making bad choices, thus requiring a detour. Or sometimes, the challenging situations may bring about an opportunity to become a better person.
It is all a matter of how we handle life’s crossroads and road blocks, and making sure that we are always in touch with God who leads us to eternal life. Jane Gonzales-Rauch (mjsg2468@yahoo.com)

REFLECTION:
It is essential to know where we need to go, but it is as important to prepare well for the journey, knowing that there will be many hurdles.

Dear God, lead me to the way that I need to go and help me overcome the obstacles along the way. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
