Which Path Have You Chosen?



“For the LORD knoweth the way of the righteous: but the way of the ungodly shall perish.” (Psalm 1:6)

Psalm 1 proclaims life’s most important challenge: We have only two paths to choose from—the path of peace or the path of perdition.

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful” (v. 1). The righteous man walks the path of peace, habitually refraining from walking down the wicked path. His “delight is in the law of the LORD.” He meditates on God’s Word “day and night” (v. 2), and he “bringeth forth his fruit in his season” (v. 3). Jesus says of this path, “Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock: And the rain descended, and the floods came…and it fell not: for it was founded upon a rock” (Matthew 7:24-25).

In contrast, “the ungodly are not so: but are like the chaff which the wind driveth away” (Psalm 1:4). Jesus describes the results of this path: “And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand: And the rain descended, and the floods came…and it fell: and great was the fall of it” (Matthew 7:26-27).

There are two paths, with no middle ground. Don’t procrastinate in choosing the path of peace. “Therefore, being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: By whom also we have access by faith into this grace wherein we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God” (Romans 5:1-2).
