I like knowing where I’m headed.
And what’s more, I prefer to know how to get there.
That’s not always a reality though. And when it isn’t, I wonder why…
“The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead their dough, to make cakes to the queen of heaven, and to pour out drink offerings unto other gods, that they may provoke me to anger.
Do they provoke me to anger? saith the Lord: do they not provoke themselves to the confusion of their own faces?”
One possible (Biblical) cause for confusion and indirection? Self-service.
The service of Christ directs, clarifies, confirms, and comforts.
Whose servants ye are.
