The words “make straight” could mean there is only one straight path for each person, and that path leads from baptism through life to everlasting life with God.
I love to think of this phrase.
It tells me that most of the time in life, we do not lose our way. We do not lose our path but just run into a few barriers that make us take a crooked approach for a while.
As we wander or zig-zag, God comes into the picture and always is there to help us “make straight” our paths. To accomplish our journey, we as humans have to focus on the end goals of the journey, which can only come from an active prayer life.
MapQuest cannot give you the straightest path to your destination until you tell MapQuest where it is that you want to go. There are no interstates to salvation. There are just paths filled with personal challenges and rewards.
