A Light to Guide You

Q: Which book of the Bible says God’s Word is a light for your path?

  • a. Hebrews
  • b. Psalms
  • c. Proverbs

Imagine this. You and a friend are on a camping trip with your parents. The two of you get permission to walk along a nearby nature trail. You pack snacks and bottles of water in your backpacks, and you start off.

You are having fun and forget to pay attention to the time. The sun is setting quickly, and you realize you’d better head back to the campsite. You know you just have to cut through the woods to get back.

“Which way?” you ask your friend.

“I don’t know. What do you think?” Your friend looks around.

“I’m not sure. Everything looks different in the dark.”

“Wait a minute. I think I have a flashlight in my backpack.” Your friend digs around for a few seconds and pulls out a flashlight. The flashlight gets clicked on, and a bright beam of light cuts through the darkness.

“Point it over there,” you say. “I think that’s the way back.”

Your friend shines the light where you point. Sure enough, your campsite is straight ahead. The flashlight has saved the day.

God says his Word will be a light for your path, just like the flashlight lights the path in the story above. The Bible tells you how to live, and it helps you make decisions. It’s important to become familiar with the Bible so you can use it as your guide for life. Read from the Bible each day, and ask yourself how the Scripture applies to you.

For You

When it comes to life’s questions, you don’t need to feel around in the dark, trying to find your way. You already have a light—the Bible. God’s Word can guide you in making the right decisions and knowing what to do when you aren’t sure of the way. Take time to read a few verses of Scripture every day.
