Imagine, if you will, that you are driving east on a highway with plans to meet up with a friend in a certain town. You come to a Y in the road. To continue traveling east toward your destination, you should have taken the left-hand fork – but you mistakenly chose the right-hand fork.
Now you are driving south on a different highway toward a totally different destination. Once you realize you are on the wrong road, how long will you continue before turning back? Five miles? One hundred miles? One thousand miles? That’s a silly question, isn’t it? Any rational person would turn back immediately.
Over the years… I have known hundreds of cattlemen who knew they were on the wrong road as far as their genetics and their business were concerned. Most slowed down – but stayed on the wrong road. Today they are even farther away from where they want to be.
Unfortunately, only a few were able to do an about-face and get back to the right road. This is a very tragic and disturbing part of human nature. If you ever discover you are headed the wrong direction, the best time to turn around is NOW!
