So you will walk in the way of the good and keep to the paths of the righteous. – Proverbs 2:20
Our walk should take us on the way of good and the path of the righteousness.
Mountain paths can be tricky and sometimes treacherous for the novice hiker. The hiker will face dangers, hazards, and unsafe areas. My wife and I recently did some hiking and chose the level 1 paths because we were new to the area. We made a choice to take the good path and one we were assured of.
The same is true in the paths we choose in life. There can be treacherous trails that lead us away from God’s will and protection. In Proverbs we are instructed to “walk in the way of the good and the path of the righteousness”. It is a path that has been previously tested and laid out by others who have gone before us. May we choose the good path set before us.
Lord, keep us on the good path and the way of righteousness for we know you have set it before us. It is there we will walk in peace and assurance of your presence.
