What I don’t know is where I am going!

Albert Einstein was well known for being absent minded. On one occasion he was travelling on a train and the conductor came to check his ticket. Einstein, however, had become so engrossed in his work that he couldn’t remember where he had put it. But the conductor told him not to worry; he had recognised that this was the great Doctor Einstein and was sure he would have bought a ticket. So he moved on to the other passengers. A little while later, as he looked back, he saw the great man down on his hands and knees searching under the seat for his lost ticket. The conductor went back to him and said, “It’s all right, Doctor Einstein, don’t worry, I know who you are.” To which the great man replied, “And I know who I am, you fool. What I don’t know is where I am going!” Which may well be true of many of us; so remember that “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him.” (James 1:5)
