MONDAY, March 4

Psalm 25:3 Show me your ways, O Lord, and teach me your paths.

A group of us were hiking up a mountain trail, and the trail markings suddenly seemed confusing. We headed in one direction, then quickly retraced our steps. As we debated our options, a woman came up the path behind us. She was part of a group of volunteers maintaining the trail. We followed her, and soon we emerged onto a rocky outcrop with a beautiful view.

God shows us the holy ways and teaches us the right paths in so many ways—through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus; the quiet sighs and fiery promptings of the Holy Spirit; the Body of Christ gathered at the table; scripture and the lives of the saints.

Most often we learn God’s path by following the saints residing in our own lives. Whenever I’ve halted, uncertain which path to take, there’s usually been someone on the trail with me who said, “This way,” and led me into the next clearing. Thank God for all our guides!

MOVING FORWARD: Who has been a guide for you? When have you been the guide for others?
