When I was a younger teenage boy some friends of mine, and myself enjoyed going in some of the local caves and doing some exploring. One day we went back in one many people had been in. The mouth of the cave was almost big enough to build a small house in. When we found the way to continue further into the cave there was narrow paths, wider paths, and all needed care for walking.
We went into the cave about as far as we could, or dared to go, then we turned and started back out. We came to a place on the way out we had to make a decision of which way to go. There was right or there was left. There was also a red flag on the right of us which one of us had seen on the way in. The majority of us said, “We need to go left.” The one who had seen the flag on the way in said, “We need to go right.” He also said, “I saw this flag on the way in, and it was on our left at that time; so we need to go right, if we want to get out.” Some argued, but he said, “I am going right to get out of here. You guys can go the other way if you want to.” He headed out right, and guess what, the others followed. We all found ourselves out of the cave.
In this mornings Bible reading I read Psalms 20 – 25. In the 25th Psalm David prays to the LORD for Him to show him the right way to go…
“Shew me Thy ways, O LORD; teach me Thy paths. Lead me in Thy truth, and teach me: for Thou art the God of my salvation; on Thee do I wait all the day.” Psalm 25:4-5 (KJB)
For those who want to know and follow God’s way must heed God’s (Red flag), which is His holy word, the Bible. The Bible points us to our Savior and Lord who is Jesus. He will lead us, guide us, and through Him we will make it to our eternal home with Him
