Giving Clear Directions

On my way to an interview, I called for directions and was told, “I live on Del Ave.,” then was asked, “Do you know where Del Ave is?”

“No,” I answer scanning the map in my mind.

“Drive over the Bridge and turn left,” came the answer.

I did so in my mind map and replied “Oh, you live on Highway 18.”

“No,” was the retort.

My mind immediately ignored Highway 18 and started looking for other “lefts” to take on my mental map but was getting nowhere. The speaker continued to talk and finally I said, “That really sounds like Highway 18.”

“Well, Del Ave. does turn into Highway 18, I mean, yes it is Highway 18,” was the comeback.

I roll my eyes and go get the interview yet ask myself…Do I sometimes know the details of a subject so well that I neglect to see the bigger picture and thus confuse others?

From 21st Century Science and Health, “We must exercise our faith in the direction taught by the Apostle James, when he said: “Religion that God and Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.”[1]


[1] James 1:27
