Follow the Road

It was a really foggy morning today in Pittsburgh. The weather reminded me of the fog I used to experience when I lived in central California. It would get so extremely foggy, you literally could not see beyond the hood of your car. The only way to safely navigate was to follow the reflectors in the road. You could not stop, or even slow down for fear of being hit from behind. You did not dare follow the car in front of you, because it may be running off the road because of the fog. You could not risk pulling over either, since you did not know where the side of the road was, or someone might be follow you over a ledge.
As I said, it was a really foggy drive into the church this morning.
Christians today are encountering the same dangerous foggy conditions, but in a spiritual sense. The Road of truth, morality, values, and who God is, have become an extremely treacherous  road to travel. The clear skies of the right and wrong, truth and error, have become increasing obscured by the fog of Man's opinions. What is the Believer to do, to safely navigate through such times? We do the same thing I did in California.
We follow the lines in the road.
"Thy Word is a lamp unto my feet, a light unto my path." Ps. 119:105
We follow the reflectors, set in the road by the designer.
"I Am the light of the world, they that follow me shall not walk in darkness."  Jn. 8:12
We don't slow down or stop, because someone is following you.
"I have set you as lights to this world, that you would show them the way to safety." Ac.13;47
