Stick to the Path

straight onlyOne of the local farmers recently fertilized his fields. He then smoothed them over rather than making rows. It looked so inviting to walk on them as they looked like a “dirt road.” I couldn’t resist, but I should have. My feet sank almost four inches and quickly became encased in soft dirt!
I quickly got back on the real dirt road, the solid one, after realizing I had made a huge mistake. But it was too late. The soft dirt had gotten between my socks and shoes. I could feel it irritating my feet with every step. If only I hadn’t let my curiosity get the better of me.
There is a reason the Bible says to stick to the path, the Word of God, and not turn off it either to the right or to the left. In fact, God told Joshua that he would succeed only by sticking to the path God laid out for him.
Don’t let your curiosity get the better of you! All paths, except the truths of God’s Word, lead to irritating results. Stay focused on the truths the Spirit gives you to put into your shield of faith. Do this and you’ll experience freedom from all the negative side affects of leaving the path and the joys that come with walking with Jesus.
