On the way to the office I sometimes see an older man plodding down the sidewalk. Behind him about 5-8 paces is a younger man, who I assume is the older man’s son. The younger man is plodding in the same way as his father. During the winter they usually have on matching coats, and in the summer the usually both adorn a white ‘wife beater’ undershirt.
In some ways, it’s a sad and depressing site. But in others is a reminder for all of us that follow.
As we walk through life we have so have a father leading us. However, it’s pretty much up to us if we are going to imitate him, or go our own way.
I feel pretty certain the younger man I see on the road might be a bit uncertain if he went out on his own. I think there’s a lesson there, waiting to be culled out.
What do you think?
