Wording of this Handout:
Don't follow that dog.
Dogs love to be away and free in the countryside. They put their noses down and they run here and there, following every smell they come to.
But what would happen if you decided to follow a rambling dog? You would probably end up miles from where you started, tired dirty, and hungry. The dog wouldn't care either!
This is what can happen when you follow foolish people. There are people who have no plan in life, and who just go here and there following whatever grabs their attention. If you follow them, they will lead you far away from God, and probably make your life miserable.
The Bible says "If the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch."
(Matthew 15:14 New King James Version)
