“There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.”
– Proverbs 14:12
Sometimes the wrong way is disguised as the right way, enticing us to follow down the incorrect path, leading us deeper into sin. We see our peers in the world on the path beside us, and blindly assume we are on the right track. If everyone else is doing it, then it must be okay for us to join is as well, right?
So often the ways of the world appear to be right, when really, the opposite couldn’t be truer. It’s important to trust the discernment granted to us through the Holy Spirit more than the things we see going on around us. We need to stand up for what is right, even if the world deems our stance to be the ‘wrong way’.
Even though it may not be the most popular road, we need to trust that the Lord’s way will ultimately lead to life, while all other paths will eventually lead to death. Choose to travel down the road leading to life.
