"There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death." NIV
"There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death." KJV
Common sense is so practical and logical that it seems like the right thing to do. It is easy to make it a habit to follow common sense or the way that seems right. This way is dangerous and can result in spiritual death. Actually this is the opposite of walking by faith. The way of faith may not make sense, but it will keep us on the narrow path that leads to life.
Heavenly Father, we ask for your forgiveness for the times we rely on our own ideas of what is right. Help us Lord to keep our eyes on you and our faith grounded in the truth of your perfect plan for us. We pray in Jesus' name. Amen.
