The highway of the upright is to turn away from evil; the one who guards his way safeguards his life.
Proverbs 16:17 NET
If you are a believer, a child of God, your path is to turn away from evil.
Here, evil is sin. A child of God will look before him and stay clear of sin.
It’s simple really. Sin keeps us from God. The true believer doesn’t want to be separated from God. The true believer wants to always be close to God!
So, the Christian is always making decisions based on if their actions would be pleasing to God and choosing on purpose to stay away from sin.
Don’t put yourself in a position that makes it easier for you to sin. See ahead! Look at what is on the path and stay clear of road bumps.
Father, there is nothing worth it, here on this Earth, to take my attention off of you. Help me to stay the course. There is nothing more I want to do than to be pleasing in Your sight.
