A Fork In The Road

ALICE: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?

CHESHIRE CAT: That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.

ALICE: I don’t much care where.

CHESHIRE CAT: Then it doesn’t matter which way you go.
(from Alice in Wonderland, Lewis Carroll)

We should all know that following Jesus is exactly that, a journey of transformation. Jesus was a peripatetic teacher, and we ought to just get used to the idea of travelling about, following His ways and and seeing change happen. Our choices will either take us closer to, or away from His path.

Choose to commit to following Jesus. After all, the early Christians were called, "The Way".

John 21
"I tell you the truth, when you were young, you were able to do as you liked; you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go. But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others will dress you and take you where you don't want to go."

Then Jesus says, "Follow me."
