Daily Walk/Meditation: Proverbs 16:25

A picture of part of my path today from near Bennington, Nebraska. My meditation was on this verse:

There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death. (Proverbs 16:25)

Human beings were never meant to find their way, but rather to receive the way from the Lord. Apart from revelation---God communicating with us---we are lost. The essence of our sin is following what we think is best, rather than what God says is best. We were created to live by every word that comes from the mouth of God (Matthew 4:4). All philosophies, psychologies, and religions end in death whenever they depart from God's revelation, and his revelation is found in the Scriptures. Those Scriptures point to his Son, Jesus Christ, and in him alone is found life rather than death.
