Did you read about the case of poor Sabine Moreau? She set out one morning to pick up a friend at a train station in Brussels, Belgium, about 90 miles from Moreau’s home in Hainault Erquelinnes. Not knowing the way, Moreau set her GPS and faithfully followed the instructions. For nearly 2 days.

810 miles out of her way.

Moreau passed through France, Germany, Austria and Slovenia before finally stopping in Zagreb, Croatia.

But Moreau had a perfectly good explanation for not realizing that her trip had taken a detour: “I was distracted,” she said.

Distracted? For two days? Traveling over 800 miles? Through five different countries? Actually, I believe her. I’ve seen people who live their lives that way, passing through time and space without ever thinking about where they are going. They’ve put their faith in someone or something that is leading them the wrong way, yet they never seem to notice. They live distracted lives, listening to bad directions which guide them down the wrong roads.
