A few years ago, my wife, daughter and I visited Beijing, China. We spent two days sightseeing. We hired a guide to show us Tiananmen Square, the Temple of Heaven and the Forbidden City on the first day. The square was empty, but crowds filled parts of the Forbidden City. Our guide just told us to follow her pink umbrella, which we did. After touring the site, she led us away from the crowds to a restaurant near a residential area. We had a splendid meal of dumplings, lotus and sweet and sour chicken. We would never have found the restaurant, or ordered lunch successfully, without her help. The second day, we drove to the Great Wall. During both days, our guide provided lots of information about each stop on the tour. She also guided us on the best path from place to place.
The Lord, as our shepherd, also guides us through life. Psalm 23:3 says, “He guides me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.” (NIV) God doesn’t just guide us from place to place, like a tour guide. He shows us the correct path in life. God guides us through the moral and ethical choices we face. His way is the right way. In China, my wife, daughter and I followed a pink umbrella to find our way. In life, we all should follow God’s word. He leads in the paths of righteousness.
