Mercedes Benz Actros truck was one of the first vehicles to be fitted with Lane Departure Warning Systems. Scania trucks, one of the Actros biggest rivals, would adopt the safety technology later.
When it comes to ‘strength’ and ‘stamina’ several arguments, have been advanced on which is the better truck between the two. For today, that is beside the point. The object of this short discourse is to draw the extraordinary spiritual truth from the everyday context. The said systems help vehicles stay in their lanes and consequently cut down on road accidents.
The Scripture functions in a similar way. It will warn us when we are drifting away and help stop avoidable accidents on the road of life.
Sometimes the Holy Spirit will steer us back to the lane. It happened to wicked Balaam in Numbers 22:21-35, and I think it should be the norm to every professing Christian who has purposed to practise his or her beliefs. Jesus’ teachings instruct us in the right direction. The voice of the Father can be heard in the pages of the Bible. God is only a prayer away.
Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
