Turn your watch into a compass. Use it to find direction!
God has given us a wonderful capacity to work out how to benefit
from His creation in unusual ways. Even many of the founders of
modern science said their discoveries were simply “thinking
God's thoughts after Him.”
One way you can use God's creation to help you if you lose your
way is to use the sun and your wristwatch to find direction. With
them, you can easily find north, south, east, or west. This will
work only with analog watches — those showing all the hours
around in a circle (don't use a digital watch!). Please note also
that this method is very rough; it cannot replace a compass for
Here's what to do …
- Get a blade of grass, or a short straight twig, or a match to
use as a pointer.
- Hold your watch horizontally, with the hour hand
pointing in the sun's direction.
- Lay the blade of grass or match across the middle of your
watch, halfway between the hour hand and the 12. The grass
blade or match will then be pointing south.
Other ways you can use natural objects to tell time include
using the sun to tell time if you don't
have a watch, and creating a flower clock
in your garden.
