Need a Straight Path?

Need a Straight Path?

“In all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” (Pro 3:6)

What a great promise—a straight path, true, accurate, full of purpose and direction, with a sense of accomplishment. The required condition is surrender. Giving it all to God is a constant state, not a onetime event. We often see submission in a negative context, but here we learn that its outcome is positive and beneficial.

This is particularly true in business, where we are making decisions constantly and busy in a rapidly changing environment. Pause, take a moment, and submit your situation to God. You will be surprised by how straight that path can be.

Quick Prayer: I submit all I am doing to You, Lord. Amen.

Do it right.

“Such are the paths of all who go after ill-gotten gain; it takes away the life of those who get it.” (Proverbs 1:19)

There is a big price to pay for doing things the wrong way. Often it looks like an easy answer; a quick win, cut a few corners, no one will know. But God knows and sees and is concerned.

In business we face many choices of integrity every day. Let’s commit to doing it God’s way and let Him sort out the consequences. Let’s do it right and honor Him.

There is a price to pay for doing it the wrong way and a reward to reap for doing it right. You will know in your heart what is right and what is wrong. His law is now written on your heart, and when we incline our ear to our hearts, we will know what is right

Quick Prayer. “I will always do it the right way Lord, please help me.” Amen
