The cat asked, “Where do you want to go?” “I don’t know,” Alice answered.
“Then,” said the cat, “it really doesn’t matter, does it?”
~ scene from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland by Lewis Carroll
Where are you going? Many people don’t have direction. They don’t know where they are going so it really doesn’t matter what road they take. A huge problem is boredom ~ nothing to do/nowhere to go. No anchor. No purpose. No point. Suicide is way too common. Destruction. Posturing. Puffing.
I cannot force anyone to do anything. I have no power to change a person’s heart. But I CAN do something: I can testify of what gives ultimate meaning. I can testify of the truth that is found in Jesus Christ alone! The Cheshire Cat is clever as he tells Alice it really doesn’t matter what road she goes down since she doesn’t know where she wants to go. But if somebody sincerely asks me “What road do I take?” I’m gonna smile like the Cheshire Cat, I will point down the road that leads to Jesus Christ. The road of faith.
If you are lost/searching/floundering/feeling directionless… there is only one road that will bring meaning and satisfaction. Only one way to find ultimate peace.
- The road towards Christ is the hardest road to walk because Christ demands everything, the disciplines of the faith, the sacrifice of self, giving up that which you hold dear.
- The road towards Christ is the easiest road because the Lord Jesus Christ will overcome your weakness with his strength, filling you with wisdom and endurance.
