True North

By Linda Tancs

Did you know that the North Star (also known as Polaris) holds nearly still in our sky while the entire northern sky moves around it? It’s been used for centuries as a navigational tool because it marks the way true north, located nearly at the north celestial pole around which the entire northern sky turns.

We often hear about folks trying to find their “true north.” It’s popularly thought of as your own internal compass, the point around which you define yourself at your deepest level. Being unique individuals, you’re going to end up with many variants of true north. But just as there’s only one Polaris, there is only one Truth (John 14:6; Psalm 119:160). Let it be your fixed point in this spinning world.
