“Enter through the narrow gate.
For wide is the gate and broad is the road
that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.
But small is the gate and narrow the road
that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
(Matthew 7:13-14 NIV)
I am the driver designated to pull our new camper trailer. Someone asked me if I preferred hauling the 5,000 pound box on interstates or back roads. I answered, “Interstate!” They were surprised, and my reasons are simple. Small highways are curvy, hilly, and a favorite place for animals to cross from their hiding places in the woods nearby. Low hanging tree branches reach out, grab at our camper, and knock off awning caps. I admit to love the scenery of country roads, but they are more difficult for me to navigate as I pull a twenty-four foot trailer.
