I did exactly what he said. I came out of the parking garage, turned right on Houston, went down four blocks to 6th Street, and turned left, and sure enough, I could see I-35 just ahead of me. I headed straight toward it. I drove just a short way and saw a ramp connected to I-35. I went up the ramp, rounded a curve, and you wouldn’t believe what I saw. The ramp had three lanes, and painted on the three lanes were three bold arrowsand all three of those arrows were pointing straight at me! Quickly I realized that not only was I going the wrong way on a one-way street, but even worse, I was going up the off ramp of I-35, one of the busiest interstate highways in the known world!
Well, I did what anyone in his right mind would have done: I made the fastest U-turn in the history of the world. A.J. Foyt, Jeff Gordon, and Mario Andretti would have been proud of that U-turn. I found out later that the hotel desk clerk had meant to say “5th Street” rather than “6th Street.” But the point is clear. When you are going the wrong way, when you are going a dangerous way, a destructive way, a potentially deadly way, there is only one thing to do: Make a U-turn as fast as you can!This is true not only on the streets and highways of America. It also is true on the spiritual and moral roads of life. And the good news is this: With God, U-turns are allowed! God permits U-turns! God enables and empowers U-turns! There are some situations in life that call for a U-turn; nothing else will work.
