An old, iron, road-side cross in the countryside.
There was a time when cross-roads were commonly marked with a cross or, in some villages, a crucifix. At many an intersection, between field and hamlet, those crosses have stood the test of time and can still be found today.
Their placement has always struck me:
At a cross-road… a place of decision.
If there was ever a place where we needed to consider the cross, surely it is those times when we find ourselves at a cross-road, an intersection, a place of decision. Like those roadside crosses, considering the cross will help guide our choices.
When we don’t know what to do in a given situation, the Word of God gives us a hint:
Take whatever course of action will lift up Jesus and give him a place of preeminence.
He will use that moment, that decision to draw the hungry heart to himself; whether the hungry heart is your own or someone else’s.
Follow the cross!
