Choosing the Right Paths: Explore The Bible Study

2:16 PM

Have you ever gone hiking and chosen a trail that led you down a path that was so difficult you doubted if you could ever make it back? What caused you to make that choice? Was it a lack of knowledge, ego, or peer pressure? Whatever the case, we know that choosing the right path is always better than choosing a path that might lead us into dangerous situations. Choosing the Right Paths is the focus for the Explore the Bible Study from Proverbs 4:11-27.

Becky and I love to hike, so a few weeks ago we “broke out of Covid-19 quarantine” and found some new trails to hike nearby. The area we visited had multiple trails with different levels of difficulty. Each trail had color-coded markers. We chose a path that we knew we could hike safely and took off. Periodically we would cross other paths and would have to refer to the color-codes so that we could remain on the correct path.

In this continuing study of Proverbs, Solomon uses the image of two paths to continue teaching his son (and us) about wisdom. One path, the path of godly wisdom, would lead to satisfaction. The other path, the path of wickedness, would lead to a gloomy outcome.

We are faced with choices every day and throughout our lives. Some are insignificant. Some seem to have one clear answer. Some have a variety of good answers. We should heed Solomon’s advice when considering these different paths. However, there’s one choice of ultimate significance where there’s only one good option: Will you follow God or reject Him? This is a choice you will have to make eventually if you haven’t already. I hope you have chosen wisely!
