Huh?...Dead Dogs on the Highway?

Why on earth would anyone call a book about forgiveness, "Dead Dogs on the Highway?" Well, there's a backstory...

When I was growing up, we lived on a very busy blacktop road. I was around 5 years old, and I remember coming into the house to announce that it was time to get a new dog. The latest one had just been hit on the highway. Dead animals had become a common thing. It was no big deal. I no longer had any sense of feeling attached to my pets. I was in shutdown.

As human beings, we can only handle so much pain. When the pain gets too great, we go into a kind of shutdown of our natural senses. Reasonable functionality has all but ceased. Subconsciously, the person creates a worldview to cover it all, declaring that life “simply stinks. I’m just trying to make the best of it.”

The amazing thing is that the person with the dead dogs generally doesn’t even know what’s on his highway and can’t see the animals because they have become so familiar. Unless removed, the dead dogs are still lying on the highway, still affecting every thought, every decision, and especially every attempt to spiritually influence others. For the person with the dead animals piled high, taking a drive down the road to normal life is somewhere between difficult and impossible. 

We do not have to live with dead dogs on the highway. They do not have to decay over time. We can be free and clean. Praise God! The dead dogs do not have to stay.
