Take the Short Cut
By Sonia Brown

ďI guide you in the way of wisdom and lead you along straight paths. When you walk, your steps will not be hampered when you run, you will not stumble.Ē (Prov 4:11-12)

            Everyone knows that the shortest way is always the straight way.

            I went to a UTEP football game with my husband, Tom, and with some close friends. We always have such a good time especially since we are having a winning season. And because our team has played so well the University stadium has had several games sold out. The crowds are huge.

            On this day we arrived early. We didnít want to have to struggle through the crowds. We wanted to find our seats quick so, like any true football fans, watch the kick off. We desired to see the whole game from beginning to end.

            So we sat down at the 50 yard line and made ourselves comfortable. As the football game proceeded we began to get hungry. Now you know you have to eat at a football game. Snacks go hand in hand with football but who was going to get up and buy the snacks. I volunteered.

            I knew a short cut. I wasnít going to have to stand in line for an hour. I wasnít going get frustrated. I had season passes and knew my way around. I learned quickly on where and where not to go. Most people go down below to purchase their snacks; however, I went to the top of the stadium. Itís where the announcer broadcast the games. They have concession stand up there. It literally took me only 10 minutes to get hot dogs, cokes, and nachos. I surprised everyone around me when I returned. They couldnít believe how short of time it took to purchase all our goodies.

            Well do you know life has shortcuts? Yes, it does. I discovered them just like I discovered our snack bar.

            Godís word tells us that wisdom will guide us. His word is wisdom. We also have the leading of the Holy Spirit to lead us and tell us ďThis is the way, walk in itĒ (Is 30:21).

            We donít have to go through life lost and confused. We donít have to take sin detours. Detours always lead us through the long way.

            Near our home the transportation department is fixing the streets for drainage. They have provided several detours to take. All of my neighbors hate it! Itís so time consuming. Thatís the way sin is. It is a waste of our time. Itís never worthwhile. We always regret.

            Take time to get into Godís word and ask the Holy Spirit to lead you. Donít believe the lie that you donít have time. This is the shortcut and the fastest, most rewarding way to live.
