When I lived in Pennsylvania the bus we took to school would drive by a rock that had been placed right outside an old tavern. I could tell something had been carved on the rock, but I could never read it fast enough as the bus went bouncing by the rock. Once I could drive myself to school, I stopped and read the inscription carved on the rock. The rock was a milestone marker which stated how many miles it was to Philadelphia. It was placed there for travelers, young and old, to gage how much longer until they reached the city.
Milestones are important because they help us know and understand several truths:
- We are on the correct path.
- We can see where the path is going,
- We can see how far away we are from the destination.
In life there are milestones we all go through. Obviously, the first milestone is birth. Most will say becoming a teen and then an adult are the other milestones. Yet we are still left with the questions:
- When does a teen become and adult?
- Are there other milestones in a child’s life?
- Are there spiritual milestones?
We will be exploring these questions October 14th, at Calvary Community Church, from 9-11 am.
