Monday Mini-Sermon

One day on the Oprah Winfrey Show she interviewed Steven Covey, author of "The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People."  During the interview, Mr. Covey asked the studio audience to close their eyes and point north.  When the people opened their eyes again, they were all pointing in widely different directions.  Then Mr. Covey pulled out a compass and said, "This is how we know which way is north. You can't know which is north from within yourself."

And his point is well taken. You and I need something we can trust that points to the truth.  ...
The Word of God needs to be our "Compass" since its trustworthiness and accuracy will point us in the right direction.
