A Road

“Grasshopper wanted to go on a journey.  ‘I will find a road,’ he said.  ‘I will follow that road wherever it goes.’  ….This road looks fine to me,’ said Grasshopper.  ‘I am on my way.'”

This is the opening prologue to Arnold Lobel’s Grasshopper on the Road.  Arnold Lobel is a classic in kids books.

The book does not mention God but I see God all over this.  God wants us to go a journey and find a road, follow it, and have a good attitude about it.  He wants us to go on a journey to find Him, follow His road, and have a joyful, righteous heart full of praise for Him.

I see parallels with The Road by Cormac McCarthy.  I read this book several years ago but from memory The Road in that book is the lifeline for survivors in a post-apolocalypic world.

God’s road is a lifeline for us to Him.

I am reminded of Isaiah 35:8-10  “And a highway will be there; it will be called the Way of Holiness…only the redeemed will walk there…gladness and joy will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”

    Hi, I follow your BSF posts weekly. I was sorry to hear about all the commotion about your postings. I haven’t seen any since, have you decided to stop posting? (I might’ve missed an update somewhere?) I don’t see anything wrong with sharing your personal thoughts on the lesson. Thank you for the encouragement you’ve shared with me and others.
