“Oh, that they were wise, that they understood this, that they would consider their latter end.” ( Deuteronomy 32:29)
The road less traveled is not necessarily the best choice; it depends where it leads to. Before we take any road it is wise to know what is at the end of it. Perhaps we learn from others who have traveled the same road, or from maps. If we knew in advance where certain roads led, we would not have taken them at all!
God is our supreme cartographer who plans our path by means of the Bible. In Psalm 32:8 He tells us, “I will instruct you and teach you in the way that you should go; I will guide you with my eye.” All we need to do in order to choose the right road is to read His Word and obey it.
Proverbs 4:26 admonishes us to ponder the feet of our path by observing the signposts and warnings God has placed along the way. Some signs may read, “DO NOT ENTER”, and if we do, we proceed at our own risk.
There is a road that is narrow and difficult, but it leads to eternal life. It is the road that Jesus and his followers traveled throughout the centuries, and it is filled with unspeakable joy. There is still time to change your direction today, but tomorrow may be too late! (Judy Whittaker)
