This Proverbs verse is clear. What can be trusted? Can you listen to the directions given by a man? Can you trust that a road sign is always correct? What if you run into a detour? Was your GPS programmed correctly or updated or is it working in the area you are in? Is it getting any reception? May I suggest that the Holy Bible is the atlas for life that we each need. We need the Word of the living God written on our hearts for any occasion. Deception is everywhere!
There is a way that appears to be right, but in the end it leads to death.
This verse is evidence that deception and lies attack us. We all have many paths to choose from in this fallen world, and there are many paths that lead to death. These paths are often laden with temptation and enticements that make them look easier or better to travel. Without the Holy Spirit’s help, wisdom, courage, faith, and grace – we will never find a way to take the road that leads to righteousness. Today, know that our path is clear. “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me'”. (John 14:6)
