Thus you will walk in the ways of good men and keep to the paths of the righteous. Proverbs 2:20
Have you ever tried to walk a straight line for a long time? Think of how difficult such a simple task it is to walk straight for ten miles.
The Christian path is like that. Seems simple at first glance. But there are flowers in the fields, animals roaming the forests, must-see monuments, and cute out-of-the-way eateries along our path. All of these beckon for our time and attention. There are also potholes on the path too. If we focus solely on the flowers and animals and sight seeing extravaganzas, we’ll walk across these potholes. In fact, I daresay that there are more potholes that call for our attention than good things.
But our focus is straight and narrow. Intentionally. Decidedly. And of course you need wisdom on this road, wisdom to make the right choices out of thousands that call us. Pray for that wisdom.
