Daily Wisdom 312: Proverbs 14:12

Proverbs 14:12 (NKJV) — 12 There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death.

The way that seems right. We must not walk by our physical senses and carnal human reasoning. The way that leads to death actually seems right to the flesh. As far as the eyes can see, the ears can hear, and the senses can reveal, it is the right path to take. But the end of this way is death. (See Matthew 7:13-14.)

How then are we to walk? We must forsake what the senses, the carnal mind, and human traditions tell us and instead walk only on the path revealed by the Word of God. (See Psalm 1; 119:105.)
