Looking Lost

Blank signpost 2 (clip path)I recently made my first trip to Children’s Hospital in Cincinnati. I was there to be with a young friend of mine who was having surgery.

There were several times during the day when I had to stop and ask for directions. (Yes, some men actually do that.) Whether driving or walking, I wasn’t always sure where I needed to go.

A couple of times while I was walking through the hospital, workers stopped to ask if I needed some help. The lost look on my face must have given them a clue that I did indeed need some assistance. The staff was most helpful in guiding me to my desired destination.

This incident reminded me that a lot of people are looking lost out there as they try to find their way to their eternal destination. Those of us who are not lost must recognize our obligation to help those who are. We must be constantly on the lookout for people who desperately need to be pointed in the right direction.

How will we know them? Sometimes it’s written all over their face.

“Be wise in the way you act toward outsiders; make the most of every opportunity.”—Colossians 4:5.
