Take some sidewalk chalk and head outside. Now draw a giant letter ‘V’ so that the top ends of the ‘V’ are farther from each other than you could possibly stretch. Go back to the bottom point of the ‘V’ and attempt to walk with one foot on each line all the way to the top. (By the way, this is a great lesson for your family devotions. You can have your kids draw the ‘V’)
When you were at the bottom of the ‘V’ walking with one foot on each line was pretty simple. Your youngest, who can barely walk, could even succeed at that one. But as you became more committed, it became harder to keep one foot on each line. In fact, the further you go out with the ‘V,’ the harder it would become. Eventually, you would either fall over or be forced to choose a side.
