C.S. Lewis on Walking the Better Way

C.S. Lewis has a wonderful insight on what to do when you discover you are on the wrong way:

We all want progress, but if you’re on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; in that case, the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive.

In other words, you don’t try to reform the current way you are walking.

You don’t try to upgrade a wrong way.

You don’t even try an extreme makeover if your road isn’t worth walking.

You need the right road. So, turn around and get back to where two roads diverged and you didn’t take the less traveled one. You get to that point and you choose another way. And start walking.

Or here is what you may also discover: When you know you are on the wrong way and you ask God to show you his Better Way, keep your eyes open, for very soon a side path will appear on your broad road. It is the exit off the broad way, and soon you are on your “off the broad road” journey with Christ.

We are here to help you walk the Better Way of Jesus.

What I love most about my job:

Having the ability to empower and resource leaders to bear much fruit that lasts. Being a part of a team of friends and missional servants committed to changing the world.
