Can We Trust Our Map?


Tom and I have always loved to travel.  He has always been the driver; I have always been the navigator.  We make a great traveling team.

Until one day…

Tom bought our first GPS for a trip we were taking to Los Angeles.  Since he would be driving those massive highways which were highly unfamiliar to both of us, he thought it would be a good idea to have “another voice” to guide him.  I ambivalently named her, “Joyce, the Voice.”  She was accurate, but very slow.  She would tell us to take the exit on the right when we were in the far left lane, which happened to be 10 lanes away.  Inevitably we would hear Joyce proclaim arrogantly, “You are off route!”

When I used a road map, one thing was certain – it’s accuracy.  The only error came from it’s reader.  How true this is of reading the Bible.

I’m grateful there is only one voice we must listen to as we travel Route 66, and it is a voice we can trust.  Listen to John Piper answer the question, “Can we trust the 66 books of the Bible”:

Tom and Debi have been sharing encouragements through their blogs for many years. Marriage, Reading God's Word and documenting family history is our focus. Growing in our relationship with the Lord is primary in all we say, write or do. We are grateful for all who desire to join us in the same endeavors.
