The Way That Seems Right

TRANSLATE [GTranslate]

 PROVERBS 14:11-12

Proverbs 14:12 — There is a way that seems right to a person, but its end is the way that leads to death. .

Often, we question our own judgement and ask, “How come I ever think that was an excellent idea?” when we consider a choice we made in the past. The reality is, though, that we probably felt justified in making that decision or picking that option at the time.


In retrospect, it is easy to see how things might have been done better. When some distance has gone and you have had time to reflect on your actions, you will be able to see the outcome of the situation with more clarity, much like a 20/20 vision. Every one of us has a limited capacity for clear vision in the here and now. It is important to remember that even if you make a choice or have a thought that seems reasonable, it may end up causing more damage than good in the long run.

Jesus forewarned His followers that sticking with Him would be challenging and not seem worthwhile at first. Even though He warned His followers that following Him would not be easy, He insisted that following His teachings would be the only road to eternal life.

Follow me through this little door,” he commanded. Many people choose the path to oblivion since it is easy to find and wide enough to accommodate everyone. Yet few indeed discover the narrow doorway that leads to life’s eternal reward.

Matthew 7:13-14 — “Enter through the narrow gate, because the gate is wide and the way is spacious that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. How narrow is the gate and difficult the way that leads to life, and there are few who find it!

That is to say, there may be a variety of paths that look right, even from a religious perspective and appear more appealing than the way of Jesus, but ultimately they will lead to devastation and sorrow.

Is there a path you are on that might lead you away from Christ? And what, exactly, can you do about it?


Help me Lord Jesus to have the spiritual insight and wisdom to recognise the right path to take in order to follow you. Amen.
