"Listen, my son and be wise and set your heart on the right path."
I liked this verse when I read it because it is so easy to set out on the right path that God has for you but it is also very easy to be lured off that path. Having wisdom, asking for wisdom, and praying every step of the way will keep us on that path. Its also very easy for us to want something so bad that we think we can take a detour and then get back on the path without consequences. What ends up happening is that the detour is so full of rocks, bumps, and potholes that we end up needing to be pulled out of them. Our God is faithful to pull us out of them and to put us back on his path but if we would just trust him and stay right by his side we could avoid a lot of heartache. So use your map (Bible) and keep your eye on the prize...Jesus!
