Today's Verse : Proverbs 4:27

Do not swerve to the right or the left; keep your foot from evil. — Proverbs 4:27


When I see someone swerving in and out of their lanes of traffic, I immediately go into a defensive driving mode. Whether they are drunk, sleepy, or just plain careless, I know they are dangerous. God wants us to know the same is true of us when we allow ourselves to wander by and sample every form of temptation available. Let's stick to the straight and narrow with our eyes firmly fixed on Jesus!


Loving Father, please forgive me for being so easily distracted by sinful temptations. Please give me wisdom to see the things that the evil one has designed for me and avoid them and resist them. Please make Jesus, his costly sacrifice, and his holy life very real to me today, and every day, as I seek to be your holy child in the corrupt world in which I live. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

  1. The way to stay in the strait and narrow path is to guide zealously our relationship with God. Our walk with Him is what keeps us. Like Jesus told us, we can do nothing on our own. We are only able to stay on the path and bear fruit in and through Him. Our times in the word, prayer, fellowship, etc. must never be taken for granted. They are tools whereby we sustain our essential koinnonia with the Father. God continue to grant us grace.
