Proverbs 14:12 says There is a way that seems right to a man, but it’s end is the way of death.
We’ve all seen these signs on the road telling us to take another route. We may not like these road closures but they are there for a reason, and we follow what the sign says and take those other routes.
If we can be so obedient to the road closures that man places in front of us, why do we struggle with being obedient to what the Lord says?
We can’t go around treating God’s word as if we don’t care, we just can’t do what we want to do like we did before we became a Christian. Our lives are not our own. When God speaks we are to heed to that word. If we continue to ignore His word we will find ourselves down a path that will lead us to death.
