The GPS units in cars must be the brain-child of a woman. Men are too proud to admit they are lost - so they continue to drive around until they see something they recognize... maybe days later. And if you think that a man who is lost will listen to his wife tell him which way to turn, think again.
But a GPS unit is a technical toy and a marvel - so men are anxious to have one and eager to hear it's mechanical voice tell them which way to turn. Now these men are "in control" and happy to follow directions from a little plastic box. Did I mention that it gets its position from SATELLITES?
(Proverbs 1:7) The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge; Fools despise wisdom and instruction.
Humans (men and women) are too proud to admit that they are lost. They will just wander around until they see something that appeals to them. They certainly are NOT going to ask God for directions about how to live their lives. That is so old fashioned! That is so out of date! We don't need those "crutches" anymore - we have SCIENCE that tells us we can do whatever our little hearts desire... but then they wonder why the world is in such a mess.
Until and unless a person will humble himself before the Lord, he will reject God's directions for his life. As long as he rejects God's directions, he will keep on going in wrong directions.
