Asking for Directions

three-wise-menMen are said to have an aversion to stopping to ask for directions. Even when they are obviously lost, they would rather drive around until something looks familiar. Their philosophy is to circle around until they find the place they are looking for.

There is at least one time in recorded history when men actually stopped to ask for directions. It is found in Matthew 2, when the magi (wise men) stopped to ask where they might find the baby Jesus. They were rewarded for their actions. They went on their way and successfully arrived at their destination.

It is still a wise thing to stop and ask for directions.

Especially when it comes to finding a way to get closer to Jesus.
