Oops

He was just doing what he was told to do. Who would have thought it could be so wrong? Apparently, two senior citizens from Britain were touring Germany when the GPS in their car told them to turn right, and they did, even though there was no road on their right to turn on to. Instead, the 76-year-old driver drove straight into the side of the village church, writing off their car and damaging the church’s foundation. A police spokeswoman commented, “They were confused and didn’t notice that the navigation system was faulty”. I guess there is the entire confused thing, but you’d think he would have noticed the church! The Bible tells us in Proverbs 16:25, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” The rough translation of that admonition is to pay attention to where you are going. And if you need some route guidance don’t forget Psalm 119:105, “Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.” And while we trust His word will lead folks to church, we would prefer that they leave their cars in the parking lot.. Have a great week and remember: To see what is really possible, you will have to attempt the impossible.
