The Dividing Point

 •  1 min. read  •  grade level: 9
High in the Canadian Rockies is a rushing stream called Divide Creek. At a point in its course the creek divides around a large boulder. Waters which flow to the left of the boulder rush on into Kicking Horse River, and finally into the Pacific Ocean. Waters which travel to the right rush into the Bow River which courses through the mountains into the Saskatchewan River, on into Lake Winnipeg, the Nelson River, Hudson Bay, and eventually the Atlantic Ocean.
Once the waters divide at the boulder, the ultimate destiny of the separated streams is settled. Downstream from the rock there is no turning back.
Every person meets his "great divide" which determines his destiny. The greatest "divide" of all comes when one chooses to accept or reject Christ. This "divide" determines eternal destiny.
