The scripture for today, March 6, is Proverbs 3:6 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible:
“In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.”
Our life has so many twists and turns in it, so many short cuts that never work out, so many detours, so many mountains to climb and valleys to make our way through. Life on earth does have its problems, and those are our assignments from God ~ to follow his way instead of Satan’s way.
Our path to heaven is another matter. Our path to heaven is straight. The Bible ~ God’s Word ~ is a path for us. He has done everything in his power to straighten our path and make it easy for us to reach him. How? By providing his Son to die in our place for our sins, and by providing us with His Word to read any time we want and as often as we want.
Paths in this life can and will be bumpy and crooked. But the path to heaven ~ thanks to our merciful God ~ is straight. What path are you on?
