Wrong Way?

Wrong Way

When the elevator door opened a mother and her young daughter got on. However, as soon as they got on, I watched as the mother took her daughter by the hand and immediately got off. The daughter was confused, but the mother explained, "That elevator is going the wrong direction."

Is your life going up or down? Have you "boarded" an idea, a belief, a relationship, an organization, etc. that is taking you the wrong way? Get off, just get off and take anyone else with you that you may have led astray. "There is a way that seems right to a man, but the end of it is destruction." (Proverbs 16:25)

Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.

That parable is so good in a number of ways S&S.

My first thought was "What if we're not paying attention and don't notice we're going the wrong way at first?" My second thought was "Ah grasshopper, that's why it's good to be in the Church, and to cozy up to a few who are wiser than you. They can see the lighted arrows you cannot."

Thanks Fred, that's very good thoughts.

If you noticed the dates in his signature, this pastor was pastor at this church for 40 years, and has just now retired. Forty years ... like 40 years in the wilderness, a generation. Almost unheard of in Southern Baptist churches. Anyway, I have the pleasure of taking him quail hunting this Saturday, and I'm really looking forward to it.
