“To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus said, ‘If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples.’” – John 8:31

In May 2022, a 26-year-old woman who drove her SUV down a flight of stairs claimed she was “following her GPS instructions,” according to police in Portland, Maine.

Officers with the Portland Police Department didn’t buy the woman’s claim, stating they “felt it was her excessive blood alcohol level” that led to the unusual crash.

The officers said the woman, driving in a Toyota Highlander, drove through the police department garage, across a pedestrian plaza, and down the stairs.

“We are fortunate that she didn’t strike anyone and this ended with just a small amount of property damage,” the Portland Police Department said in a Facebook post. “Please don’t drink and drive.”

The woman was issued a summons for allegedly driving drunk.

It is curious that some people are overly obedient to machines, but they will not follow the Lord. Today in prayer, ask the Lord to give you a heart that is ready and willing to follow after Him.
