Seek his will in all you do, and he will direct your paths.
Proverbs 3:6
Stay on the Path
As I headed out on my morning run yesterday I was lured from my usual path by a bridge that I assumed was the same bridge I normally cross only newly constructed. It was not long before I realized that this bridge would take me where I did not want to go leaving me confused and disappointed. The next day I set out with my eyes wide open determined to find out where I went wrong. To my surprise that weathered old bridge that never failed to lead me home, was exactly where it had always been; only a few feet beyond that new bridge that so easily led me astray. This small distraction from my normal routine made me aware of a much larger distraction we as Christians face today. The distractions and attractions of the modern world we live in can sometimes cause us to forget our commitment to God. We claim Jesus Christ as our Savior, yet we so often go with “the flesh” instead of allowing ourselves to be led by the spirit. Living a Christian life has taken a back seat to living a self-serving life. We are more concerned with our riches on earth than with our treasures in heaven. We are more merciful to animals than we are to people, and we are so much better at debating the Bible instead of obeying it. We make excuses for every thing God calls detestable, and we cross every bridge imaginable, and we wonder why we are so confused and disappointed. God has given us his Word so that we may always choose the right path. He gives us his spirit to lead the way when we do get lost, and he is always where he has always been: within the hearts and minds of those who love him. If we seek him in this world, then he will direct our path to the one to come.
