Walk the light path


Prov 4:14-19
Do not enter the path of the wicked,
And do not walk in the way of evil.
15 Avoid it, do not travel on it;
Turn away from it and pass on.
16 For they do not sleep unless they have done evil;
And their sleep is taken away unless they make someone fall.
17 For they eat the bread of wickedness,
And drink the wine of violence.
18 But the path of the just is like the shining sun,
That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.
19 The way of the wicked is like darkness;
They do not know what makes them stumble.

These proverbs remind us that the path of life splits into two ways, usually many times a day. You can go the way of wicked or the way of the wise. Pray you are not led into temptation. Do not go that way, with your hands, your heart, or your mind. One of the devil’s schemes is to convince you that you will give in to temptation eventually, so you might as well now. Verse 16 says, they can’t sleep until they do evil. But that doesn’t describe the just. They walk a different path. Pursuing God, grace and gratitude leads to sleeping with a good conscience. Avoid the bread and wine of wicked violence. But eat the bread and wine on this [Lord's] table. There is light on the path of the just, because Jesus is the light of the world. Walk in the light.
