Proverbs 4:18:19

6/25/2019

"The path of the righteous is like the morning sun, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. But the way of the wicked is like deep darkness; they do not know what makes them stumble. "

This passage tells us that righteousness is like the morning sun shinning bright to illuminate our entire lifes.

But the path of wickedness is deep darkness, so much so that who takes this path cannot see where they are going. The darkness is so thick that they do not know what makes them stumble.

They do not know why their lives are full of pain and why they cannot find joy. They do not know what makes them sin and why they cannot help themselves. They do not know why they continue to sin, even thought it is destroying them every day.

The reason is because they refuse to believe that Jesus is Lord. This belief is what opens our eyes and brings understanding and freedom from sin, so that it no longer destroys us. This is the only way to joy.
