We haven’t had a sign in a while and just to keep you on your toes, I’m not going to say very much. Instead, I want to hear from you and the thoughts that come to mind from this sign:
Stay on the path. Not stay in your plan. Path. Plan. The words are so close, aren’t they? But the sentiments for life, worlds apart. Paths have flexibility and meander. They often space to move to the right or left. Plans need to be followed more exactly.
For certain tasks or projects, I can see the necessity to follow the plan. When I was in high school there was a obsession to “discover God’s plan for your life.” (Maybe it wasn’t just when I was in high school, maybe it’s every generation’s obsession.) I think how much more life giving if we’d been encouraged to stay on a path and not discover a plan. So, here I say it to myself and if you want to listen in, you’re welcome. Amy don’t confuse a path with a plan. Stay on the path that leads to life.
Your turn. What thoughts did this sign stir in you?
