Ok, I will stand in for the stereotype man: No, we do not like to stop and ask directions. Call it pride, maybe lazy, maybe overconfident, but we are sincerely sure that we will find the right location, if we circle a little longer.
Sometimes it works out, mostly not.
Turning over directions to another is not our strong suit. Then we enter a relationship with Jesus, who asks us to follow him. And then he leaves earth, becomes omni-present, but not easy to find with the naked eye, only with the disciplined, meditating spiritual eye.

May people receive hope and God's name be glorified. I am looking forward to digging deep into the Word in such a practical and applicable area.
