Who You Choose to Follow in Life is Important

I heard the story of the woman driving through the mountains west of Denver when she ran into a snowstorm.  She was completely lost and then peered ahead and saw a four-wheel drive pickup with a blade on the front of it.  Since she was lost she decided to follow the truck and kept as close to the machine as she could while it removed snow from the road.  At times the blowing snow almost cut off her view, but she kept following the truck.  The truck would go up the hill get to the top and make a “U-turn” and go back down the hill.  She faithfully kept following the truck.  After about the third time that the truck went up and down the hill, the truck stopped, and its driver got out and walked over to her car.  “Lady, where are you going?” he asked.  “I’m on my way to Denver.” she replied.  The truck driver replied, “Well, you’ll never get there following me! I’m just plowing my drive-way!”

Who you choose to follow in life is important.  Before you decide to follow, make sure you know where they are going first.
