Which Road?

The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
-Robert Frost

At some point in our journey, as travelers passing through, we will come to a crossroad, a fork in the road and be forced to make a choice ... which path to take? How do we make the right decision? How do we prevent aimless wandering? What is the right path?

The right path is one that is lines up with the Word of God.

The right path will be consistent with who He made you to be.

The right path will usually lead you away from self-service to servant hood.

We can get advice from friends, family, etc. But, for fail-proof directions, seek God. He will be your confident guide.

You guide me with your counsel,
leading me to a glorious destiny.
Psalm 73:24
