“Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, and sorry I could not travel both and be one traveler, long I stood and looked down one as far as I could to where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, and having perhaps the better claim, because it was grassy and wanted wear; Though as for that the passing there had worn them really about the same, and both that morning equally lay in leaves no step had trodden black. Oh, I kept the first for another day! Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back. I shall be telling this with a sigh somewhere ages and ages hence: Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.” -Robert Frost
On many occasions on our journey, we come across a fork in the road. One path is well traveled; the other not so much. As we debate which one to take, we watch as our fellow journeymen take the road well traveled without a second thought. However, our Heavenly Father calls us to take the less-taken path. Why?
Think about this. If Abraham, the father of the future nation of Israel, decided that his life in Ur was perfectly fine and did not follow God’s command to leave, would there be an Israel today? If our Lord Jesus Christ decided that His life was not worth sacrificing for this sinful world, would there be salvation for us?
Today, contemplate which path your Father wishes you to take. Though the easy path looks promising, the road less traveled has greater reward.
