The Old Paths

Jeremiah 6:16
"      Thus says the LORD: 
                  “Stand by the roads, and look, 
      and ask for the ancient paths, 
                  where the good way is; and walk in it, 
      and find rest for your souls. 
                  But they said, ‘We will not walk in it.’

God calls us to stand at the crossroads and compare the paths.  Consider your options.  You could walk in the old paths, the way God designed for us from the beginning.  The way of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control.  Or we can choose new ways the world offers: hatred, contention, lewdness, jealousy, selfishness, envy and revelry.  One of these ways offers rest for your soul; the other does not.  And yet, we often deliberately choose the way of satisfying the flesh, the eyes and the pride of life.  Let us turn back from turning our back on God.
