More than a century ago, Samuel Foss wrote the poem you just heard. It is titled The Calf Path, and it talks about how unaware we can be about the manner in which we journey through life. This is because it is easy to think we are moving along through our own decision-making when we actually may be meandering aimlessly along paths others have created before us. This can happen because our sense of direction – especially spiritual direction – is flawed. It has been infected with a spiritual virus called sin, and it can (like Foss’s calf path) cause us to wander to and fro, and back and forth, rather than taking us in the direction God would have us go. That is the bad news. The good news is that God offers to show us the best way to get to our destination. And God offers to help us not only complete the journey, but also to travel it in such a way that we experience joy, peace, and contentment along the way.
