A matter of personal preference
Many love baseball; others never watch or play.
Some can fish for hours; others would be bored stiff.
Opera has its devotees; many can’t stand it.
Choices that lead somewhere
Is devotion to God in the same category as a recreational pastime–fine if you like it, fine if you don’t?
With the free will God gives us we can seek Him, or we can pursue a myriad of other options.
But are we prepared to argue that all choices are equally valid?
Christ offers us a choice—the way that leads to life or the way to destruction. Few choose the former; many the latter (Matthew 7:13-14).
Which shall we choose? Or more accurately, which are we choosing?
We’re on one path or the other—right now.

Driving through a Pennsylvania snow storm at night, we wanted to pull off the road until visibility improved, but we couldn’t tell where off-the-road was.
A car passed, and I thought I’d follow, but soon its tail lights disappeared, and we had lost our “guide.”
What a helpless feeling in a world without reference points!
Wrong way/right way
On our way to eternity, it’s far more critical that we find our way. “There is a way which seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death” (Proverbs 14:12).
There are only two roads, Jesus says. The popular one ends in destruction, while the road few take leads to life (Matthew 7:13-14).
Thank God, we’re not left without direction! His word reveals the way (John 14:6).
