Minister and author, James Emery White wrote that his wife asked him if he knew why it takes one million sperm to fertilize a single female egg. He replied that he didn't know. "Because," she deadpanned, "none of them will ever stop and ask for directions."
Men fail to find the humor in that joke. But even for us guys, the first step toward obedience is stopping to get directions, and those directions are found in the Bible.
Can't you just see God standing in the middle of life's intersections, His hands upraised, stopping the traffic of humanity to tell us: "Just read the Book! That's why I wrote it!" When it comes to obedience, the writer of Psalm 119 revealed one of the great secrets of life: "Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path."
The directions are there. All we have to do is read them.
