C.S. Lewis writes in the Chronicles of Narnia series of the need to follow the path God sets before us. In one story Aslan, the God figure of the series, instructs young Lucy and her brother to follow the way he will show them. He also tells them that at times there will be roads that seem easier but they won't be. Always go the way he will show them. They readily agree. But after Aslan is gone there comes the time when the road Aslan has pointed out seems to be too difficult and Lucy and her brother decide that it won't hurt to take what appears to be an easier path. It is not long until the supposed shortcut has led them far astray and Aslan must come and save them. -- Watson
