Influencing culture for the Kingdom

Proverbs 2:9 NIV

“Then you will understand what is right and just and fair—every good path.” 

I recently read an article about changing your life path after the age of 50. The author even referenced a man who changed everything about his life, city, activities, everything when he turned 80. The average person changes jobs 12 times in their lifetime, according to the latest available public survey data (2019). The average employee stays with their employer for 4.1 years as of January 2020. (Zippia). I recently saw this quote about changing ones path in life, “Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path.” In this chapter Solomon talks about the different paths we choose to walk in life. He lets us know that the outcomes are determined by whether we follow the path of the wise, God followers, or the foolish, Satans followers. There are certainly many times we choose our direction for the day, even for the moment. All of them ultimately lead to Gods calling on our life or they lead us away from it. The poet correctly stated, “Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.” (Robert Frost, “The Road Not Taken”) God’s followers know that Jesus told us those who follow His voice will choose “the narrow path” and “few go that way”. The beauty of God’s path is that there is no prerequisites or conditions to change from the path leading to death to His path leading to life other than recognition of Jesus as Lord and Savior. Seem easy? It has been called the easiest and most expensive decision you can ever make. Another saying I saw reads, “Some people cross your path and change your whole direction.” That ‘people’ is actually a person – Jesus. Today allow God alone to lead you on His path. #BeTheEdge
