On a recent roadtrip across the state of Montana I once again found myself caught up in the beauty of Big Sky Country. Having spent the early years of my life in the big city, dealing with bumper to bumper traffic and congestion, I’ve grown to appreciate the splendor of wide open spaces all the more. The picture perfect scenes of the Montana countryside make the time on the road a blessing. And this particular roadtrip was no different. The snow covered mountains reaching towards the cloudy sky was truly something to behold. But somewhere along the way I realized I hadn’t passed another car or truck in over an hour of driving. There was no one coming, no one going. The road truly was mine! But I couldn’t help but think, “There’s a lot of people missin’ out on experiencing what I’m experiencing as I travel down this road.”
Did you catch that? Only a few ever find it. It’s alarming to me that the Bible says “many” people are on the highway that leads to hell. It’s bumper to bumper traffic with the lives of people headed down a path that leads to death and destruction. That ought to keep us up at night! It’s time for many of us to pull out a map (the Bible) and see where we are…and where we need be.
Are we a part of the few headed down the road that leads to life or are we rollin’ with the masses? Choose to go against the flow today!
