Though people tried to bribe me, I have kept myself from the ways of the violent through what your lips have commanded. My steps have held to your paths; my feet have not stumbled.(NIV)
Have you ever seen a mountain goat jump from rock to rock or climb straight up the side of a mountain? They do it with very little effort. If we tried that same climb, we would need ropes, bolts, anchors, and safety equipment.
When out hunting or hiking in the woods, it’s possible to come across many trails and paths. Some paths will get you home and some won’t. It’s important to know what’s what out there.
King David warned us about the path of the wicked, Proverbs 4:14. God has a better path and He will teach us His ways, Micah 4:2. If we follow God’s path, we can be like the mountain goat and have no fear of slipping or falling.
