When our GPS Flounders: Genesis 12:2-3 as a Correcting Lens
GPS’s are wonderful until they aren’t. Once home, I tried to figure out what had gone wrong. Seems like the GPS was confused by a recently opened road at a roundabout which meant that it should have told me to take the third exit, not the second one. And that is when the chaos had set in. One little wrong direction and my careful plans were almost wrecked.
While it may sound a little trite, I recently heard someone suggest we should check our personal GPS system – because even if only slightly out, it can lead us seriously astray. The speaker went on to argue that the GPS was our beliefs about God, People and Self.
