What’s your destination

March 30, 2018


My family recently got away for a couple of days during spring break. We enjoy picking a destination, renting a room, and exploring the unique touches located there. This has led us to find several out of the way spots offering unique perspective and food. (If you are looking for a great bakery in Indianapolis, feel free to ask Will or Lauren. They can recommend the one we stumbled upon a couple of years ago.)

Our spring break trip this year was to Milwaukee. We spent time at the art museum, had a fascinating visit at the Basilica of St. Josaphat, and found a craft sausage and brat shop with some unusual flavor combinations. When the day came to leave, we took one last drive past the big water of Lake Michigan and set out.

It didn’t take long for a situation to develop in that we thought we needed to go west but our GPS kept taking us south. Like really south. I followed it until it became overwhelmingly evident that something was seriously wrong. One U-turn and 30 minutes later we were back on the right path. I had set the wrong destination and would’ve ended up there without an intervention by my wife.

Consider with me the destination you have your life set towards. Where are you trying to get? This exercise will be more difficult than just checking your phone, but most of us know what we are hoping to get out of life. The destination you choose will take you somewhere; will you like where you end up at when you get there? Some verses that give us a proper destination include: John 15:8, Colossians 1:10, and Psalm 50:23. If you find that the destination you are heading to is not where you want to end up, don’t be so resistant to changing your course. A minor correction today will save time, hurt, and health later. Commit to pursuing all that Christ has for you. When you do, you’ll never regret it.
