Choose Your Path

by Steve Thoms All

There are times in our lives when when have to sit down and reevaluate our goals, plans, and dreams. We need to do this every now and then because we can get so caught up with the busy-ness and cares of this world that we can get OFF of our chosen path.

Then there are times that we get so comfortable with where we are (spiritually speaking) that we don't notice that we've become stunted in growth. We're just comfortable and happy so we just go along with our days nicely.

It's a good idea to take a look at things in our life and hold them up to God's standards. His standards are the ones that count in the end so we should always judge what we do by His way of thinking.
One good rule to follow is to ask ourselves if I'm following God's will or am I following the crowd {the world}.

Jesus says:
Matthew 7:13-14 Read This Chapter
"Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many. For the gate is narrow and the way is hard that leads to life, and those who find it are few."

If "everyone" is doing it then we really should take a good look to see if "it" measures up to God's standards. The Bible says that the gate is narrow and the way is hard and few find it....
However, MANY enter the path that leads to destruction.

Fellow Christian, let's always take the path less traveled. We may be looked at as odd and different; but, thats good. We want to be different because we are on a different path. The way is hard but the end is worth it!
