What road we take depends on what we want out of the hike.
In life we often take the easy road. Following the ways of the world is easy. Taking the road that Jesus made for us is what is best for us but is the road that is traveled the least.
We get on that road that Jesus is on by committing our lives to Him. It can be a hard road because it is not traveled very often. In the long run it’s the only road worth taking.
