A compass shows direction
But can not do too much more:
It will not pick up the reins
Because that’s not what it is for.

So, then, let me like the compass
Point to Jesus, our TRUE NORTH,
Then let others use their brains
And wills as on they venture forth.

It is not my job to tell them
Just exactly how to live,
But to point to Him Who made us
And then leave HIS job to HIM.

I should always point to Jesus:
I should illustrate what’s true,
But to force folks or control them
Never was MY job to do.
