In the way of righteousness is life, And in its pathway there is no death (Proverbs 12:28, NKJV). The way of righteousness is the Lord’s way of life. Jesus said that He is the way, truth, and life. The path He walked is a path He opened for us in order to know the way; the words He spoke, we are to speak as well; and the life He lived is the life we are to live also. With this before us, can you see or imagine anything from the outside being able to knock us off that firmly placed path? There is nothing powerful enough to accomplish this. On the other hand, the littlest of things, those things we allow to distract us can brush us aside as a feather sweeps by the face. Let us keep our eyes squarely focused on Jesus; in so doing the small things will be clearly seen (Hebrews 12:1-2).
