Take The High Road ~ Proverbs 16:17

 Proverbs 16:17

Proverbs 16:17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.



 Sometimes when we make poor choices in life, we’d like to be able to blame God, and say he led us along the path we took. But often, we didn’t really seek God’s direction or guidance, before taking that fork in the road. Oh sure, we prayed about it, but did we really wait for the Lord’s answer, or did we just jump in and go our own way? And before we know it we find ourselves at a dead end, and wonder how we got there. 

 Thankfully, it’s never too late to ask God for directions. He’s always there, waiting for us to let him take the wheel. Sadly though, taking the wrong path often has negative consequences that don’t suddenly go away once we put God in control again. So, before we make that detour, we better check the map, and make sure that the Lord is the one who put the roadblocks up!

Proverbs 16:17 The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul.

Jeremiah 31:21a Set thee up waymarks, make thee high heaps: set thine heart toward the highway,


Proverbs 4:11 I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.
