The runners in an NCAA cross-country track championship held in Riverside, California, came to a turn that was not well-marked. Mike Delcavo knew the way and waved frantically for the other runners to follow him. Only four did. One hundred twenty-three out of the 128 runners took the wrong turn and lost their opportunity to win the race. Delcavo later said his competitors were laughing as he chose to take what he knew was the right way.
In the spiritual race we are running, the crowd may be small or large, but the size of the crowd is not how we determine the right path. Jesus said, 'I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me' (John 14:6). Whichever way He goes is the way we want to go.
