Not Where I Wanted to Be

golden archesI enjoy finding a bargain as well as the next person, so I was thrilled to get some great coupons for Wendy’s. I drove into the parking lot, got out of the car and entered the restaurant. I told the young lady behind the counter what I wanted, and informed her that I had some coupons for a discount price. However, she seemed a bit confused by my order. Somewhat reluctantly, she told me that they could not honor the coupons that I held in front of her. It was about that time that I noticed the golden arches right outside the building. Yes, I was trying to order Wendy’s food in a McDonald’s restaurant!

If that’s the most embarrassing thing that ever happens to me, I suppose I would be OK with that.

Sometimes we don’t pay attention to where we are going, and therefore we end up at an unintended destination.

Don’t let that happen to you at the end of your life.

“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 the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”—Matthew 7:13-14.
