So it seems...
“There is a way which seems right to a person but its end is the way of death.” Proverbs 14:12
I randomly came across this verse today and it just stayed with me. The world we live in offers so much information that people are consuming it. We now have statements like “follow your heart” and “my truth” that have people doing all kinds of things, even folks who claim to be Christians. There’s a shortage of those who consult the word for actual Wisdom.
Proverbs 1 reminds us that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Being in awe of God and having a reverence for him. It’s a mindset that recognizes we are not God and we don’t get to make up our own definitions of good and evil or right or wrong. We need to humble ourselves before God and embrace his definitions of right or wrong even when that is inconvenient for us.
All humans are affected by the fall of Genesis three and we don’t naturally desire to follow the Lord. We want to take the “shortcuts” and choose “self-oriented living”.
I pray today that we run to the Lord because he alone “knows” what is true and right.
Have a great week. Keep me in your prayers as I am finally hitting the studio working on songs over the next few weeks to hopefully finish part 1 of my next release!
Until next time
