Recently we watched a guy who turned south on a highway we were on. There were numerous lanes. He wanted to go south. The road was connected to his destination. The car responded to his direction. There was no law enforcement officer saying, “No.” The reason we noticed? It was a one way road heading north.
You would have thought he would have known better.
Already crossed the southbound lane.
Signs saying “no right turn”
Arrows on the ground
No center line
He was finally convinced by three lanes of traffic heading straight towards him. It worked out well with shaking heads and laughter for all. Embarrassment usually doesn’t do permanent harm.
What will it take to convince you? How is life working for you? I don’t mean whether you got the raise or whether your transmission just blew up. I mean the general sense of purpose and satisfaction. Sometimes the choices we make seem so right and are so wrong. Jesus put it this way,
(Matthew 7:13 KJV) Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:Just because the road is wide and inviting does not mean it is the right way to go. Maybe it is time to rethink some life strategies and priorities.
