The scripture for today, August 20 (8/20), is Proverbs 8:20 as found in the Old Testament of the Bible.
“I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice.”
Interestingly, the original Hebrew of “way” is the customary path, and the original Hebrew of “paths” is the customary road.
If you had a house out in the country, it would have paths leading to and from it. These paths would be taken in your day-to-day life without much thought. In the same way, we live out our principles and moral standards pretty much the same every day on such paths.
But eventually, these paths can merge into major roads. Now we have to make major decisions. Our life decisions on such roads must be based on justice.
It is sometimes hard to make the right judgments because we can get emotionally involved and start wishing for an outcome that cannot possibly occur. In those cases, we must stand back and consider, “What would be the just thing to do if someone else had to make this decision?”.
We could also ask ourselves, “What would Jesus do?”. After all, Jesus said, “I am the Way, the Truth, the Life” (John 14:6).
Ultimately, whose highway are you on? Will it take you to where you want to go?
