Forks in the Road

The pastor at Crossbridge Church was talking about forks in the road. A fork in the road is a decision we have to or choose to make. These days, he said, there are many more forks than in the past. We have so many more choices. How true this is. Do all these alternatives make us happy? He said we need wisdom, a guide, a king to help us make the right choices. He asked who is your king? Money, career, Christ? Most people would say their values.
Global warming, dealing with terrorists, sustainable agriculture, the justice system, immigration; all big topics, where we have opinions. I wonder if our opinions would be different if we imagined we were in a closed community of one thousand people, where every decision had an impact on us. How would making a decision on how we farm affect us in five years from now? Just a thought.

One thought to “Forks in the Road”

  1. I was a couple weeks ago on Easter Island and one of the things that made me thought is the fact that cars do not have any insurance on Easter Island. You just can´t buy it. So you rent a car without insurance and if you create a damage you pay for it. That simple. The result is that people drive very carefully on Easter Island (6,000 inhabitants) 🙂
