“The righteousness of the perfect shall direct his way: but the wicked shall fall by his own wickedness.” (Proverbs 11:5)
Today’s Morsel: One of the things about ability is it will enable a man to go to the top, but it will take character to keep him there. In one’s own wicked way, which he has chosen and delights to walk in; he shall stumble therein, and fall to ruin and destruction, into hell and damnation. Jesus said that “if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.” (John 11:10) Ability refers to being able to do something, which means that if a person can do something, they have the ability to do it. Men are often elected for a job based on their skills and talents. The good man, not blinded by passion, follows a safe and direct path of life; but the wicked, led by his own evil propensity, and losing the light of conscience, stumbles and fails. “And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness; the unclean shall not pass over it; but it shall be for those: the wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein.” (Isaiah 35:8) Remember, ability can get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there.
Sing: Oh, there’s a highway to heaven. None can walk up there but the pure in heart. Oh, there’s a highway to heaven, walking up the King’s highway!
Thought For Today: “And an highway shall be there, and a way, and it shall be called The way of holiness.”
