Hear His Voice
In ancient Greek mythology the epic ten-year journey of Odysseus, as he returned from the Trojan War, required that he sail through treacherous straits guarded by the beautiful and tempting Sirens. These seductive female creatures sang so beautifully that sailors listening to them would be lured off of their courses and into the destruction of the rocks. To avoid the same fate, Odysseus ordered his men to plug their ears with wax so that they could not hear the beguiling music. Then he ordered them to tie him to the mast and to ignore all of his commands until they were safely out of the Sirens’ reach. Like Odysseus, we need to heed the danger and take it seriously. As we navigate through a world filled with sirens beckoning us off course, we must set our course for Christ’s kingdom mission and tie ourselves to the mast of Christ’s truth.
