Running in the train

Dietrich Bonhoeffer is one of my "heroes" in the faith (I know I not supposed to have Christian heroes, but I find his work inspiring). He once wrote:

"If you board the wrong train, it is no use running along the corridor in the other direction. " - Dietrich Bonhoeffer

How simple, yet profound is that?! 
Many people have "boarded" the wrong train in life and think that if they run faster along the corridor they will get somewhere. How wrong can we be? We will still end up at the wrong destination.

Which train have you boarded? Is it going in the right direction?

Living in Grace
