|Jesus knows where life will take us and what we need|
I've always considered life as a journey. However, a few years ago I began to see life as more of an adventure. After all, we can never be sure where life will take us. A journey is planned out, somewhat detailed and scheduled. However, an adventure is much different. As Yogi Bera once said; "When you get to a fork in the road, take it."
I began to think about packing for a journey, versus packing for an adventure. If it's a true adventure, we really don't know what to pack because we don't know where we're going or what we'll need when we get there. The thought of arriving in a winter wonderland with nothing but flip flops and sunscreen, or arriving in the desert with only a winter coat and snow boots can be somewhat frightening.
A journey is different. Even though we can't predict every detail, and there are no promises we won't accidentally take a wrong turn, we at least know our predicted destination. Leaving town with nothing but the shirt on your back might sound adventurous, but I'd like a little money in my pocket and water in my canteen.
