I Don't Want to Fall in a Ditch

And He spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?  Luke, Chapter 6, verse 39.

Sometimes we get into a routine of doing whatever everyone else is doing.  If they are going to a particular church, we try it out.  If our friends use God’s Name in vain, we forget what we learned in Sunday school while we were growing up and start using His Name in vain too.  If everyone else is doing it, it must not be all that bad.  Right???
We need to make sure the people we choose to follow are those who make choices God would approve of, or we just might be following someone right to Hell (the ditch).  That definitely isn’t the direction I want to go!
Here is a related passage:
*Let them alone: they be blind leaders of the blind, And if the blind lead the blind, both shall fall into the ditch.  Matthew, Chapter 15, verse 14.


Because this an example of how I’ve applied these Bible passages to my life, it doesn’t necessarily reflect the whole meaning of the passages. Debbie
