The Crowd Follower Lesson


The crowd followers
 
The crowd followers
 
Look at those crowd followers. Aren't they a bunch?  Are you following the crowd from breakfast to lunch and never asking, "Where are we going?"  They say to them, “We are just riding the current wherever it’s flowing.” Now, this is sure a breeze.  Following the crowd is as easy as you please." They never stop to consider where all this will end; they just keep on following all of their friends.
Everyone else must know where we're heading, so why should I do any fretting?  I'll just follow the crowd all day and all night.  I'm sure everything will turn out all right."  Everyone is laughing and having such fun.  Why not following the crowd would really be dumb.  I really don't care where all of this may end; I just want to keep having fun with my friends."
But, every road must come to an end.  The crowd followers too have to round the last bend.  And, when they do, they will come face to face with the creator and designer of the whole human race.  And, he'll not ask what the crowd has to say.  For each person will have to speak for themselves that day.
And, when everything has been said and done, the crowd again will march forward as one.  No one will, that day, want to follow their friends, because they know destruction will be their end, but because they spent their life following the crowd, on that final day, not turning back will be allowed.
Lesson:  If you decide to follow the crowd in life, you need to ask yourself one question? Do I really want to go where the crowd is leading?
