Posts Tagged ‘There’re killer ditches on both sides’

The great Steve D Herron told his preacher boys, “There’s a ditch on either side of the road; the devil doesn’t care which one he gets you in.” Bro Herron was right: there’s a right ditch (being un-biblically strict) and there’s a left ditch (being easy on yourself). Spiritual death lurks on either side. From many years of travel (have driven between 1.5 and 2 million miles) I make this observation. Probably more have survived going off the road on the right than on the left. The drift to the right may kill you but you may be injured, total a car or less – its often a one-car wreck. You may be the only one hurt/killed. The drift to the left often is a two-car accident and becomes fatal for you and the one you hit head-on. I urge you to not drift either way but as for me, I’d rather err by being a little too hard on “x” than being too easy and therefore also injure/kill others.
