I read these words this morning. Right before I turned on the news. Right before I heard about the latest violence…the latest tragedy…the latest thing to worry about. Right before the commercial came on advertising things that I “should” have…more stuff I “can’t live without”…more stuff I can’t afford.
I’m glad I read these words first:
25 Look straight ahead,
and fix your eyes on what lies before you.
26 Mark out a straight path for your feet;
stay on the safe path.
27 Don’t get sidetracked;
keep your feet from following evil.
