Your Guides Mislead You

“O my people, your guides mislead you”

 

The blind tell you where to go

And the deaf, they teach you

 

Because they tell you to dig holes, and promise buried treasure,

But you’re just stuck in a hole

They’ve buried you, there was no treasure                                              

 

“Your guides mislead you”

 

Because they tell you to climb the mountain, own it all,

You get there, you made it,

You freeze and die, alone, at the top

 

“O my people, your guides mislead you” (Isaiah 3:12b),

Turn to Me

About Paul O'Brien

I am a lot of things; saint and sinner. I struggle and I strive. I am a husband and father of three. I have been in pastoral ministry for 9 years. I went to school at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary but most of my schooling has been at the School of Hard Knocks. I have worked various jobs, including pheasant farmer, toilet maker, construction worker, and I served in the military. My wife and I enjoy reading at coffee shops, taking walks, hanging out with friends and family, and watching our three kid's antics. :)
