There are a lot of straight roads, some of which go on for miles upon miles. Most roads, however, are not completely straight; they have turns and curves.
Life is like most roads: it is full of twists and turns, many of which conceal what’s just around the bend.
This morning I was traveling down a stretch of Highway 24 that curved along beside the Tennessee River and into downtown Chattanooga. The sun was rising in the east, therefore practically blinding anyone driving in that direction.
The following thought crossed my mind and prompted me to pull out my camera: “This sort of looks like I’m on the road to Heaven, and there’s the glow of the city just ahead.”
That’s when I took this picture.
Fact is we really don’t know what lies ahead around the bend, do we? Sure, we have things like maps, GPS, and the popular Waze app, but eternity is not exactly a pot hole, speed trap, or detour.
Just around the next bend in the road your trip could end. What then?
It would be best to know what direction you are headed, for only one leads to eternal life (Matt. 7:14; John 14:6).
