Yesterday, three people walked into our church building asking for a ride. I walked up to them, introduced myself, and told them that I would be happy to drive them where they needed to go.
The problem is they didn’t where they were going.
They said that they wanted to go to a friend’s apartment that was over by the OU campus, but they didn’t know the address. All they were sure of was the color of the apartment building.
So, I drove them by several apartment complexes around the campus, hoping that they would soon spy something that looked familiar.
We drove for awhile but nothing clicked.
They told me to just drop them off at one side of the campus and they would find it from there.
They were very nice and thanked me for getting them “this far.”
Have you ever tried to give a ride to someone who doesn’t know where they’re going?
It’s a pretty difficult task.
But have you ever tried to go somewhere without knowing for certain where you’re going?
Some people live their lives that way.
They set out on a course without knowing what they want to accomplish, what direction to go in, or how to get where they wish to go.
Do you know where you’re going?
Do you know how to get there?
Are you clear on what you want in life?
Have you identified the type of impact you want to make with your life?
Do you know what you believe?
Do you have clear goals?
Do you have a vision of who you want to become?
Whatever time you spend answering these questions is a worthy investment.
Trust me, you don’t want to drive around in life without knowing where you’re going.
