"The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul."
Proverbs 16:17 (King James Version)
Have you ever been on a trip and didn't know which road to take? To make matters worse, you realized that the map you were using was out of date. There is good news for us. We have a map of life and it is the Bible. The Bible clearly shows us the highway to Jesus and Heaven and it will never be out of date.
There are two highways in life. There is the highway of Jesus which leads us to Heaven and happiness. There is the highway of satan which leads us to hell and eternal punishment. May God help us to stay on the highway of Jesus. If we want to live with Jesus, we need to stay on the right highway.
Have you departed from evil or are you still doing the things that hurt Jesus and break His heart? Jesus has told us to be kind and loving and forgive those who hurt us just as He forgives us when we hurt Him. Jesus doesn't ask much of us considering all that He has done for us.
Heavenly Father, please forgive us for getting off the highway of the love of Jesus and going down satan's highway which is the highway of criticism, sarcasm and judgment. Please help us to be shining lights for Jesus in the midst of a world filled with darkness and despair. Amen.
