View the Base from Above - John 11:9-10

" Several years ago when my son Brady drew a maze on a sheet of paper for me to try to solve. There were so many detours and dead end streets that I never could get to the finish."

Family Discussions:

  1. What are the walls and dead ends of the maze that you're running in, in high school or in college? Or as an adult?
  2. How do we get God's view from above the maze?
  3. What does it mean to walk in the light after having a view from above?
  4. What's it mean to walk in the light?

Transcription:

00:14 Have you ever wondered what it's like to be in a human maze? Well, I've been in one. I'm going to tell you about it today. It was interesting. Uh, the scripture today comes from John Chapter 11 verses nine and 10. Jesus answered, "Are there not 12 hours of daylight? A man who walks by day will not stumble for he sees by the world's light. It is when he walks by night that he stumbles for, he has no light." It was probably several years ago when my son Brady drew a maze on a sheet of paper for me to try to solve. There were so many detours and dead end streets that I never could get to the finish. You know, I live in Branson, Missouri. It's a tourist town and there actually was a human maze and it was cool. It would give you a puzzle and, and it had kind of a whole different perspective of mazes.

01:04 You, you would take off running through this giant bunch of hallways and walls to find four stations where you would get the marks M A Z. E on a card before five minutes was up. If you made it in time, you'd get a free tee shirt. And it was a trip and a half. I lost the race to my son, you know, Brady and, and a very curious thing occurred to me. I climbed the stairs up on an observation deck where I could see the pathways in walls, clearly from above. It was so simple to memorize the path to victory. I don't know if I ever won, but it seemed like I could, you know, anyone could win after a careful view from the top. Boy as I council, countless teenagers and college students and adults. What you see so many bruised foreheads, you know, on all of us is we bump into the walls of this sin ridden society that we live in.

02:06 My, how a view from above could start each day with a winning trip through our daily maze. So here's the questions. How is your life today? Like a maze and then, and then what are the walls and dead ends of the maze that you're running in, in high school or in college? Or as an adult? You know, what are they like for you and, and you all, here's the big, isn't this great. How do we get God's view from above the maze and, and then what does it mean to walk in the light after having a view from above? What's it mean to walk in the light? And this is the greatest thing about a family. Boy, in a family, we can help each other view the base from above.
