While travelling home one Tuesday evening my brother and I found our selves more stressed out than ever. Driving through the city can be quite hostile and sad to say you may be following the road code while others choose to ignore it.
While approaching the toll booth I realized there was a huge traffic pile up and cars began honk their horns uncontrollably, ignorant to what was taking place I advised my brother who was driving to Stay In his Lane and avoid the madness that was before and behind us. My brother listened and stayed on course, as we approached closer we realized what had caused the traffic congestion, some unruly drivers decided to create another lane in order to get through the toll booth first.
Just like the unruly drivers there are a few of us who believe that we can create our own paths in order to get ahead or to reach to the Kingdom. God's word explicitly says in Matthew 7:13-14 "Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:
14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it" For those disobedient drivers who created their own lanes it only lead to confusion and created problems for the rest of the other drivers.Christ in his attempt to store us has always offered guidance because We all, like sheep, have gone astray each of us has turned to our own way; Isaiah 53:6 Only a few of us will truly understand what it means to stay and abide in God and that he will keep on us on the path for the eternity.
My prayer for us this year as children of God is that we stay on course,stay on track and yes Stay in Our Lanes.
