The Lord says, “I will make you wise and show you where to go. I will guide you and watch over you.
(Psalm 32:8 NCV)

A traveler on a journey requires direction. The compass is an instrument for determining directions using a freely rotating magnetized needle that always aligns itself towards the true magnetic north. The people of earth are on a journey towards eternity and require divine direction. The Bible gives directions using scriptures that always align a person towards the true Living God.
