My friend took us to a really awesome restaurant that served real Korean food. Later he brought us to a store where we bought electrical adapters, an iron, hairdryer, hangers, and more things that made life easier. Had it not been for our native friend, we wouldn't have found the way to the amazing places we went to that night. We had discovered a whole new face to this city - our world had expanded! And I am forever grateful.
I wonder if the Kingdom of Heaven is the same way. Being stuck in a small spot for long periods of time is not fun; depression and complacency settle in, and sadness overtakes us. But going to a new place brings new life. We see a bigger picture of who God is and a brighter picture of his love. We can't always get to this place alone; sometimes someone has to show us. God can never be searched out, so let us keep searching.
