A few days ago, a couple of lost souls in the library asked me for directions. I pointed, and talked, and watched them, so I could offer course corrections for a bit.  I think they made it to their destination, but I don’t know how many more times they had to ask. As I went about my own business, I thought – It would have been better to walk with them to the point in question. Things would have been a bit more clear that way.

Is that the difference between just reading the Bible, reading books, etc and actually following Christ by allowing him to walk with me? I just ask for directions and then wander off to muddle through myself sometimes. To allow the Spirit to walk with me might just make things a bit easier to navigate.
