“There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.” Proverbs 14:12
Family members and friends gathered at a home to console one another over the loss of a cherished father. When the coffee was ready to be served, the sugar bowl was filled from a can retrieved from a cabinet. Mourners poured cup after cup of coffee, nine of them sweetening theirs from the sugar bowl. During the night these guests became violently ill, and five of them died. An investigation found that what these people had sincerely believed was sugar was really insecticide.
They were sincerely wrong.
How can you know what is true and right? By examining every idea under the light of God’s Word. The Bible will always tell you the truth. If you will hold up every thought and every belief to the Word of God, it will show whether it is true or false; whether it is helpful or harmful; whether it gives life or kills. Sincere belief can be sincerely deadly if what you sincerely believe is a lie!
Today, thank God for His perfect Word. It is the way that is right for a man, and its way ends in life!
Have a great day, and keep moving forward!
