James Bryan Smith wrote a book about the life of Christian singer/songwriter Rich Mullins. He named this devotional biography An Arrow Pointing to Heaven.
Rich Mullins would be the first to say that he shouldn’t be put on a pedestal. He would say, “Look to God, not me.”
That’s a good piece of advice. None of us is perfect. We have the potential to lead people astray.
However, Paul the apostle says, “Follow my example, as I follow the example of Christ.” (1 Corinthians 11:1). It seems that we can point people in the right direction, and this should be our goal in life.
Let’s all try to be an arrow pointing to heaven today.
