Stop Walking in Circles
“By the sweat of your brow you will eat your food until you return to the ground, since from it you were taken; for dust you are and to dust you will return.” -God, Genesis 3:19
We are lost without direction and guidance–doomed!
This video is a reminder to me the life we live without God, a small picture of our fate without someone or something to guide us. What I like about this illustration is that in the beginning we very likely head out in the right direction, and as we get the closest to the destination, say in our twenties, we really beging to sense the life our Creator had in mind–full of hope and optimism as we get a glimpse of life and it’s potential. But, it’s at this time that we also begin to drift away from where we should be going and the process of decay begins… until, finally, after a few loops (maybe a midlife crises) we just circle.
We need direction and guidance. Ideally, we need someone who has succeeded before us and can see what we cannot. Strangely enough, to follow a guide keeping you straight will look insane to everyone else going in circles. I choose to look insane.
