Going Straight

As soon as my wife and I turned into our lane late last night we saw a skunk making its way up the driveway. We slowly followed it, our headlights illuminating the way for the little fellow.

We didn’t get too close, for obvious reasons. The skunk kept a steady pace and never swerved to the left or right, like other small animals tend to do when they move away from humans.

In my few experiences with skunks, I have noticed that they tend to move in a straight line. They pick out a direction and do not deviate from it.

I guess we should do the same.

“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.
