“Here ya go, Mommy,” said the young son.
“Oh, thanks. What is this?” inquired his mother.
“You said you got lost last night in the big building you now work in, so I drew you a map to help you find your way out.”
According to his mother, he also drew her a map, to guide her home, in the shape of a heart. He obviously loves his mother very much and wants to make sure she comes home, where it is safe, warm, and love abides.
Grab a tissue, right?
When Adam and Eve sinned they were banished from their home. The Garden of Eden. A beautiful, warm place. Peaceful and full of love, visited by God daily. Man was doomed to be lost forever, unless someone provided mankind with a plan, with a map to find their way home again.
God drew a map. The starting point is wherever you currently are in life, You make your way to the cross where God’s only son died for us for He was the perfect sacrifice to make atonement for our sins, (wrong doing). Jesus, the ultimate gift, exhibiting the ultimate kind of love.
Once there at the cross you turn right and go straight by reading God’s word which shows us how to live our lives, so we are guaranteed to find our way home, where it is safe, warm, and love abides.
