A couple named Curt and Jerrie went on an African safari. They learned a lesson about following the instructions of the guide. One day the guide took them out to find an elephant herd. But he made them promise in advance to obey his rules before they even went out. He gave them some very specific rules. He said, “First, if I say ‘Run!’ you run! Don’t pause. Don’t stop. Don’t take a picture. Don’t think you can hide. Don’t drop to your knees. You run! That’s law number one. Number two, when you run, when I say run, you follow me, the guide, exactly. Put your feet in my footprints. Follow me step by step. Don’t try to forge your own trial. Because in a panic, you’ll, one, get lost in the jungle, or, two, you’ll step on things you wish you hadn’t stepped on. You run when I say run and you follow my steps exactly.” Sure enough they came upon an elephant herd and it stampeded. The guide said, “Run!” and some of the people froze in their tracks from fear, panic. The guide said again, “Run!” Jerrie said at that moment in spite of my fear I had to move forward, I had to go forward. If I hadn’t obeyed I would have been trampled. If I hadn’t followed exactly in the footsteps of the guide I might have stepped on something or I might have gotten lost. The point was, she said, I had to make the decision to obey before I was in the circumstance.”
