The Old Ways

An ambulance was rushing a woman in labor to the hospital when it slipped off the icy Michigan road. A four-wheel drive truck attempted to pull the ambulance out of the ditch, but could not get any traction on the ice.

An Amish man driving two horses saw the predicament and hitched his team up to the ambulance and successfully pulled it out of the ditch.

The old fashioned method of a team of horses succeeded when the newer methods failed. Jeremiah 6:16 “Thus saith the LORD, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls. But they said, We will not walk therein.”
