Finding True North

A few years ago I read this amazing scientific fact:  “The earth’s magnetic field is changing. According to scientists, the magnetic poles are “sliding towards Siberia at 34 miles per year at a speed that has accelerated 36 percent over the past 10 years.” A compass, which relies on magnetic north, can no longer be trusted. The good news is that fluctuations in the magnetic field have occurred throughout history. Just use that GPS and you’ll be fine!”  (Our Daily Journey / Jan. 5, 2012)

As I read those words I couldn’t help but think about so many other things in our world that are “sliding toward Siberia!”   At one time True North for marriage and the rules that govern society was God’s Word, yet in the world we find ourselves living in today, that has drastically changed for many people.  But not for the true people of God!

Followers of Jesus cannot rely on the guidance of this world’s “magnetic field”…the pop stars, talking heads, TV psychologists, politicians…those who desire to pull the direction of truth away from The Book  and toward the Abyss.  We must not be taken in by lies and half-truths.  True North for our lives and homes will always be found solely in the Scripture.

You have reached your destination …
