Taking the Path I Think is Right

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.” (Proverbs 14:12, NKJV)

We live in a world where people live by their feelings. What seems right, feels right, looks right is what must be right. However, the wise king admonishes that there are paths before men that seem right, but they lead to death.

When people make decisions by feeling or emotion they negate the principles of reason and truth that tell them to go another direction. When we make decisions based upon what we think should be right, we have neglected to take into consideration what is right.

What path are you following in life? Is it the one you feel is right, or the one that is right? Is it the one someone else told you is right, or the one that God stated is right? Do not be fooled by your own reasoning and ideas, let God show you what is right through his word. Remember the words of Jeremiah 10:23: “O Lord, I know the way of man is not in himself; it is not in man who walks to direct his own steps.”
