Choose your rut carefully

Friends from America told me about driving through rural Iowa after heavy rains and suddenly finding themselves on a long stretch of unsealed road. Next to the official sign that announced that the road was under repair was another sign that someone had put up, which said: ‘choose your rut carefully; you’re going to be in it for a long time.’
That sounds almost biblical. It reminds me of the words Jesus used to conclude his Sermon on the Mount: ‘Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.’
As John Oxenham wrote: ‘To every man there openeth – a high way and a low; – And every man decideth – the way his soul shall go.’
