TWO MILES OF DITCH


I was headed home late from a wedding reception and had about a two hour drive when a friend said to me, "Remember that for every mile you drive there are two miles of ditch".


I was in the car before that really sunk in, and then it hit me, for every path we walk, there are two miles trying of ditch along the journey inviting us to veer off the road. Twice as many chances to stray away from God.


Few of us intend to go into the ditch. No one just drives down the road and says "Hey I'm going to drive into the ditch" or appropriately "I'm going back to fishing". For most of us, it is a simple hugging of the shoulder and little by little we move ourselves from the patch of following Jesus and somehow we end up off the road and in the ditch.
