Are You On “The Highway To Hell” or “The Stairway To Heaven?”

      Earlier this week, we were having our morning sales meeting at Jim Tidwell. As we gathered for the meeting, ACDC’s song “Highway To Hell” was playing on the radio. Hearing it, one of the guys, thinking about Led Zepplin’s song “Stairway to Heaven,” said, “Why is there a highway to hell and a stairway to heaven?”
      Think about that line… “Why is there a highway to hell and only a stairway to heaven.” That’s pretty good and it’s right. There is a highway to hell. If you could picture I-75… if you could picture the lanes on I-75… cars are going at least 65 and maybe as much as 85 at times… Let that image fill your life… there is a highway filled with people going to hell.
      It’s an easy road… It’s filled with good intentions… it’s filled with people seeking a buzz…
      Then, there is a stairway to heaven. Think about it.. a stairway…it’s narrow… not nearly as wide as a highway… That stairway represents a pretty good idea of the straight and narrow that Jesus talked about.
      Jesus said, “Enter through the narrow gate. For wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the way that leads to life, and only a few find it” (Matthew 5:13-14).
So, which road are you on? The highway to hell or the stairway to heaven? The highway to heaven is not easy but, it’s most definitely worth it.
