The psalmist wrote, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” Those are powerful words and a bit foreboding. But do we believe them? Better yet, do we heed them? Do we fully understand that our way is rarely the right way? And the truth is, the counsel we receive from this world usually ends up less than successful. The means by which God has chosen to sanctify us doesn’t always make sense and, sometimes, it isn’t very attractive. But it is the best way because it is Gods’ way. Yet, we are constantly tempted to take another path, to pursue a different set of objectives, hoping for the same outcome. But God’s will can only be accomplished God’s way. And no matter how wise the ways of this world may sound, they can’t deliver what God has promised. God has great things in store for us, and while the world may offer tempting detours and shortcuts, they always end in death.
