Highway of the Upright #185

The highway of the upright is to depart from evil; He who keeps his way preserves his soul. (Proverbs 16:17)

Highways are designed to be free of obstacles so we can travel with ease, speed and safety. Choosing righteous living instead of evil is the difference between traveling a winding dirt road and a multi-lane freeway. Still, even on the freeway we must be careful; neglect leads to injure and even death. We grew up learning to “drive defensively” to avoid accidents. Protect your life today by “driving defensively”. Make decisions that honor God and keep faith with Him. As you live for God you are guarding your life from the danger of evil.
