When it comes to geography, it’s true that our direction determines our destination. And much the same is true for our lives. Even more than our hopes, dreams and even intentions, our direction in life determines our destination.
In the wisdom literature of the Old Testament, Solomon says - “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going, and pay the penalty” (Proverbs 22:3). Both the ‘prudent’ and the ‘simple’ see danger - one responds by changing course, the other keeps going, and hopes that the danger, will never arrive.
Solomon’s wisdom is - if we’re on a wrong track, a track in life that won’t lead to our destination, then “take action”. Step off that track and get on another who’s direction will ensure we reach our destination.
