Shortcuts or Right Road?

They’re re-doing the parking lot at one of the malls. It’s one of those lots where the “road” is around the outer edge, so everyone cuts across the parking spaces. The new design has landscaped dividers, which will force the traffic back on the road. It will be interesting to see the response of the patrons when the work is done. Will the added beauty offset the annoyance of having to drive a longer distance?

We don’t always appreciate the boundaries others set for us. We want the shortcuts. We want our own way, even with God. Ezekial 33:17 says, "Yet your fellow citizens say, 'The way of the Lord is not right,' when it is their own way that is not right.” Staying on the road with a Biblical standard may seem like the long way around, and we will meet with resistance from our fellow citizens, but it is the right road.

Have you encountered fellow citizens who say, “The way of the Lord is not right”?

God bless….
