Sometimes we struggle to find out bearings in life. Our internal compass doesn’t always match our external surroundings. This can cause us to say or do the wrong things. In navigation, we would need to find ’True North’ so we could properly set a course for the future.
This also fits our spiritual life. When we do not have our minds set on the right things we can wander off course way too easily. Our Bible text this week shows Jesus bringing His disciples back into the appropriate direction when He tells them in Mark 8:33 ‘You are not setting your mind on the things of God, but on the things of man.”
Do you need a course correction because you have wandered of the path of faith? In this life, our ‘True North’ is the Way of Jesus. We follow Him so we know ‘The Way, The Truth and The Life’. Setting our mind on the things of God keeps us from losing our bearings.
There are many distractions that would keep us off course. The 'things of man’ can dominate our thoughts and distract us mightily. They can change our outlook and cause us to stumble. Do you need a change of direction? Jesus is True North. Follow Him today!
