We are lost in the dense jungle of this world and are made for heaven. We all long to get there, but we encounter so many needs along the way. If we aren't careful, searching to fill those needs can replace our true compass. Instead of focusing on searching for home, we can be consumed by never being hungry, cold, or lonely.
When that happens, we end up living a life full of the shells of the things we are made for. Our true hunger and loneliness can't be filled by this world. But God hasn't left us alone in this jungle – he sent us his only Son to lead us home to him. Jesus is our true compass. He is our Good Shepherd. He is the way, the truth, and the life.
