What are the differences between a tourist and a traveler? A sightseer and a journeyman? A wanderer and an explorer?
Which of these words would you use to describe Jesus? Which words would not describe Jesus for you? Why?
If each of us is called to be like Jesus, what life adjustment might we discover and apply to ourselves as we explore these words?
Some interesting quotes to reflect on:
"You perceive I generalize with intrepidity from single instances. It is the tourist's custom" [Mark Twain]
“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” – Samuel Johnson
“A journey is like marriage. The certain way to be wrong is to think you control it.” – John Steinbeck
One’s destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things.” – Henry Miller
