Lost & Found

Have you ever found someone who was lost?

There are several ways to be lost. A dog can run away during a storm and struggle to find home. A child can walk away in a grocery store and both parent and child can experience a few moments of panic. These examples tend to get resolved quickly.

There is another kind of lost that happens to adults outside of obvious awareness. Some people get lost like they tend to drift – too distracted for passion or drive. They’re unable to remember their higher purpose. For these people remember this story:

A man driving through a town deep in the country stops his car and calls to a farmer sitting on a bench in front of the General Store.

“Can you help me? I’m completely lost.”

The farmer called, “Well, do you know where you are?”

“Yes, I saw the name on the sign as I drove into town.”

“All right, do you know where you’re going?”

The driver named the town he was trying to find.

The farmer shrugged. “Shoot, you ain’t lost; you just need some directions.”

The next time you find someone who is lost, help them find their Point A and Point B, then nudge them in the direction of what is truly important.
