I’ve been to a dozen county fairs, 3 state fairs, 2 World’s fairs, a White House state dinner and more shopping malls than I can count.

In traveling over six and a half million miles with just American Airlines. . .I quite often found myself in a strange and sometimes very large mall looking for a particular store.

The first thing I look for is the big board which displays all the stores and gives their particular number so customers can more easily find them.

Next, I look for the big red dot on the board so I can know where I am. Hopefully, the red dot will provide a clear route of travel to my desired destination. Sadly, sometimes things didn’t work quite that easily.

What about the red dot in your life? Do you know where you are or more importantly where you’re going?

Here are seven ways to find the red dot.

1.         You’ve Got To Know Where You’re At.

As I’ve shared before. . .I never read Alice In Wonderland until I was an adult. It’s not that I had a deprived childhood . . .but the book didn’t float my boat as a young boy.

This morning on Rich Thoughts For Breakfast I referred to 1 Corinthians 12:22 without quoting it. After the call. . .that verse kept stirring in my spirit.

I vividly remember the first time I heard 1 Corinthians 12:22 in the New Living Translation. I immediately knew it was a verse that should be taught and/or quoted on a regular basis.

I knew God would use this verse to touch and change people’s lives who feel they are weaker or less important to Him as others.

The entire verse of 1 Corinthians 12:22 in the New Living Translation says:

“In fact, some parts of the body that seem weakest and least important are actually the most necessary.”

As I was re-reading that verse God immediately gave me seven reasons why you and every other believer are strong, important and necessary to the Body of Christ.

Before getting to the seven reasons you are necessary I want to share 1 Corinthians 12:22 in two other translations.

First, the Contemporary English Version of 1 Corinthians 12:22, says:

"In fact, we cannot get along without the parts of the body that seem to be the weakest."

Second, the New International Reader’s Version of 1 Corinthians 12:22, says:
