Lost and Found
But he [Jesus] answered and said, "It is written, 'Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.'"1
Some years ago Bishop Fulton Sheen was scheduled to speak at the Town Hall in an unfamiliar city. He decided to walk and, on the way, got lost. He saw some boys so asked them the way to City Hall.
"What are you going to do there?" asked one of the boys.
"I'm going to give a lecture," replied the bishop.
"On how to get to heaven. Would you care to come along?"
"Are you kidding?" said the boy, "You don't even know how to get to Town Hall!"
Wherever we're going, it helps to know the way … especially if we want to get through life successfully and go to heaven. Clear directions are available. They're all in the Bible. For help see the article, "Passport to Heaven" at: http://tinyurl.com/dm472.
Suggested prayer: "Dear God, help me to be sure I know the way to heaven and please give me opportunities to tell others how to get there too. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully in Jesus' name, amen."
