My oldest son's new best friend is Siri. She is so good at answering his questions about the weather, where to eat, and how to get directions that she almost appears human. I overheard my son tell her, "Siri, I love you."
Siri answered something like, "love is a many splendored thing."
I give Siri a lot of credit. She wakes my son up on time to get to work or school and she maintains a pleasant voice. She is a delightful companion. There is only one thing the cell phone app can't do...give directions to Heaven.
Earlier this week I heard someone joke about why they call it a highway to Hell and a stairway to Heaven... the highway to Hell is overcrowded and the stairs are empty.
If you want to get to Heaven, don't ask Siri for directions. Don't ask the people on the highway to Hell. Ask Jesus. Here's the answer you can expect:
- The number of miles necessary to reach Heaven are customized just for you.
- Jesus will give you everything you need to reach your destination. Just take it one day at a time and don't get ahead of yourself.
- Expect to find washed out bridges, unpaved roads, and other detours along the way. There aren't very many workers maintaining the road to Heaven.
- As tempting as the highway to Hell may appear, it leads to a dead end.
- Jesus will never leave you stranded. He is your constant companion and He promises to be with you, especially when you need to take a detour.
