Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 2018 April 4

“Enter not into the path of the wicked, and go not in the way of evil men. Avoid it, pass not by it, turn from it, and pass away” 
(Proverbs 4:14-15).

Today’s Morsel:  I’m afraid that so many are not being taught the ways of wickedness for fear.  Children are being left to decide for themselves.  Satan has painted a picture of good as being evil and evil as being good.  So many are entering into the path of wickedness because they want to be people pleasers instead of God pleasers.  They are overthrowing the righteous for the ways of the wicked.  They are siding with the wicked man over the righteous man.  They are calling for the removal of righteous ways for the ways of the wicked.  How can we determine the path of the wicked?  We must know the word of God.  David said, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my pathway (Psalms 119:105).  We need to be able to see where we are going.  The apostle Paul asked the church at Corinth, “Know ye not that the unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God? Be not deceived: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor effeminate, nor abusers of themselves with mankind, Nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners, shall inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. All things are lawful unto me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but I will not be brought under the power of any” (1 Corinthians 6:9-12).  Once we put our feet in path of the wicked, there is no telling when we will fall into a trap or snare.  Jesus has brought us out of the wicked way, and we must continue to stay clear.

Sing:  He brought me out of the miry clay, He set my feet on a Rock to stay.  He put a song in my soul today, a song of praise hallelujah.

Thought For Today:  Know what path you trod.
