My husband was a navigator in the Air Force. He flew a KC 135 refueler and used a compass and the stars to chart missions. Today, of course, computers and GPS have replaced much of what he used then. We, however, have a compass that is never changing, perfect, and absolute truth. We have God's Word to keep us on track, steady, and on course. Our responsibility is to rely on the Word of God for every aspect of our lives. Like the compass and sextant used to chart the course for the plane, the Bible must be used in order to stay on course. We humans, without the guidance of our Creator, veer off course and create chaos in our lives.
But the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.
All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.
2 Timothy 3:16-17
