How much time and effort have we wasted by following our own path? We seem to take every side road when the path is straight and narrow. Turning here and there to explore side alleys we were never intended to explore.
His path is righteous. His path is holy. His path is love.
Why would we want to turn from this path?
What pride in us that we believe we know what is best? What arrogance that we believe we are wiser than God?
How much time and effort, when all He asks is that we lay down our lives for the sake of others?
