But I am afraid that just as Eve was deceived by the serpent’s cunning, your minds may somehow be led astray from your sincere and pure devotion to Christ.


Reading maps and knowing your way around is becoming a lost skill. When I was younger it was a badge of honour, however now we rely so much on our navigation apps and not our own memories of how to get from point A to point B. I experienced this in a very real way a few years ago. I was travelling interstate, without my husband, but with our then two small children. I had decided I would use Google maps to get me there safely. As we were happily heading down the freeway the GPS instructed me to exit. This direction didn’t seem correct to me, but I thought perhaps the happy voice knew something I didn’t and so I did exactly as she ordered. This, I soon realised, was a big mistake as I found myself driving down dirt paths, without internet or phone signal, or the voice to guide me. I did eventually make it to me destination, but it was the most stressful trip I have ever experienced. I was led astray from what I knew to be true. Jesus is the truth and we can always rely on what he says.


Jesus, I know that you never lead me astray, you light my paths and make them straight. Help me to remain on your right road, with a heart that desires all that you have for me. In your name I pray, Amen.
