Some say Robert Frost’s poetic piece de resistance of 1916 may be “the most popular piece of literature ever written by an American.” You may recall how The Road Not Taken ends:
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
This year you’ll come to a fork where two or more choices will present themselves arrayed in all their tempting colors. How will you choose which to take? What will be the outcome? Whom will it affect? Can you live with the results? Why so?
King Solomon’s counsel may be the one least taken, albeit the wisest:
“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.”
That next fork is just ahead. Which way are you leaning?
