The Path of Life

God never teaches unwisely; He teaches in the way of wisdom. There is not a word in the Bible which, if followed, would lead one in any wrong or foolish way. The best human friends may err in judgment, and may advise us wrongly. Human wisdom is short-sighted. Good people may be guided by personal interest or by prejudice, and with the truest love and the best intentions, may counsel things which are not wise. Bad advice has wrecked many lives. But God never errs. His counsel is never mistaken, never unwise. No one was ever wrecked by His pilotage. We may always be entirely sure that if we take the way marked out for us in the Bible that it will lead us in the right path.

[J. R. Miller]

Proverbs 4:11 ...  I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths.

Psalm 23:3 ... He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake.

Isaiah 26:7 ... The way of the just is uprightness: thou, most upright, dost weigh the path of the just.
