Welcome to another edition of the LKP Treasure Trove
Yah has promised that he will instruct us and teach us the way we are to go along our spiritual path to meet him. Part of that instruction and teaching package is a series of signs he uses to keep us on the right path, just like the driver of a car traveling an interstate highway. When we pay attention to those signs, we are sure to make it to our destination without getting lost. In today’s story, Aaron will explain this truth to his big sister on a long road trip.
“Is this all you’re taking, little bro?” asked Milcah as she grabbed one of Aaron’s bags.
Aaron nodded. “I’m only staying with you for two weeks.”
“Did you say bye to Mom?” Milcah asked as she headed out to the car.
“Yeah, twice over the phone,” Aaron said. “Too bad she’s still at work.” Aaron locked the front door of the house and joined his big sister in the car.
“I hope you brought something to read because we’re in for a long drive,” Milcah said as she pulled into the street.
“I have my Family Scripture Stories loaded on my eReader,” Aaron said.
Within a half hour, they were out of the city. Aaron read his scripture stories for a while and then he put his eReader away when they rolled through the countryside. “It’s so beautiful out here,” he said as they passed a farmstead with a classic red barn next to a tall grain silo. Lush pastureland spread out in the distance for what looked like miles, but the scenery changed again and the only thing that filled Aaron’s window was a long wall of trees. That forced him to start a game that involved counting road signs.
When Milcah heard him say, “One hundred,” she asked him what he was doing.
“Counting road signs,” Aaron said. “There’s so many. But most of them are green.”
Milcah snapped her head at one of the green signs Aaron pointed to. “The color of road signs is very important. Different colors mean different things. Green, in this case, tells drivers how they’re supposed to move in traffic and it guides them in a certain direction, like toward a town for instance.”
“Oh, I see,” Aaron said, imagining a green sign that directed him toward the Kingdom. After a moment Aaron said, “You know, Scripture is full of road signs too.”
“How so?” Milcah asked, surprised by her younger brother’s statement.
“Well, I see it like this,” Aaron said, “we’re all on the path of righteousness as believers, but that journey is full of things that try to push you off course, so Yah gave us road signs to make it to his Kingdom.”
“Yeah, I get it,” Milcah said. “Like a Stop sign in Scripture is when we’re told to stop sinning. Or a No U-Turn sign is when we’re told to not look back after we get on the right path.”
“Exactly,” Aaron said. “And I plan to follow all the signs until I get to New Jerusalem.”
NOW, WHAT ABOUT YOU?
Are you reading Yah’s road signs for your life? In John 5:14, Yeshua holds up a Stop sign by saying: “sin no more.” Proverbs 14:12 is a Wrong Way sign that tells us: “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” Luke 9:62 is a No U-Turn sign that says: “Anyone who puts a hand to the plow and then looks back is not fit for the Kingdom of Elohim.” There are many other road signs in Scripture, so pay attention to them on your journey to the Kingdom.
