"Let your eyes look straight ahead, And your eyelids look right before you....Do not turn to the right or the left...." Proverbs 4:25, 26
Today, as we are inundated with the negativity in our nation (and especially in the realm of social media), let's remember to keep our eyes looking "straight ahead." As political parties pull us "left" and "right," let's remember that no man and no woman has the answer to this world's problems. Jesus is "the way, the truth and the life" (John 14:6). Hebrews 12:13 says, "...make straight paths for your feet, so that what is lame may not be dislocated, but rather be healed."
As Christians, I believe that turning to the "right" or to the "left" is not the answer. We must "look straight ahead" to Jesus and "make straight paths" for our feet that do not steer us off course and cripple our spirituality. "Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it" (Matthew 7:14). And as we seek the straight path, let us "Pursue peace with all people..." (Hebrews 12:14). "Therefore...be diligent to be found by Him in peace..." (2 Peter 3:14).
