I do on a daily basis, both literally and figuratively! When I enter my neighborhood, I quickly come to a fork in the road and go to the right. There are others who live on the street to the left. At this fork in the road, I’ve noticed that many drivers don’t use their turn signals!
Perhaps they don’t know which road they’re going to take until the last minute.
Do you make life choices that way? Wait until the last minute, make no preparation (no turn signals), then turn one way or the other.
A famous American poet, Robert Frost, talked about a fork in the road this way:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
We all have decisions that we make daily: what to wear, what to eat, what to talk about, how to spend or save money, what’s truly important, how to behave, etc.
The Bible instructs us on how to make decisions. Here are only 2 of many verses on which ‘road to take’:
‘Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.’ Matthew 7:13-14
Give careful thought to the paths for your feet and be steadfast in all your ways. Do not turn to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil. Proverbs 4:26-27
When you come to your next fork in the road, which way will you go?
