I still can’t believe that people would pay money to go through the experience.

But there are places in the world where you can pay money to fight your way through a maze. No matter that you might run into dozens of dead ends, get lost (forever), end up back where you started or just go crazy. I have to do enough of that in real life, why would I pay someone for that tortuous experience?

One of the reasons we sometimes end up in a maze without a clue as to how we can get through it is because we’re processing life from our perspective, instead of His. If you can only see what’s right in front of you, can’t remember how you got there and certainly don’t have a clue as to how to get out, remember what the Apostle Paul said to the Ephesians: “And God has raised us up with Christ and seated us with him… in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of His grace” (Ephesians 2: 6-7 NIV, emphasis added). It’s true that the only way out is up! “Set your hearts… and minds on things above” (Colossians 3:1-2 NIV, emphasis added). All you need is a little height advantage and He’s got the market cornered!
