Psalm 25:4 Show me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.
In today’s verse there is a three-letter word that many people seem to want to change into a two-letter word. Do you know what word that is? Well, if you can count to three then you know there is only one word it could be. It is the word “THY.” Many people would like to have this verse read, show me “MY” ways, and teach me “MY” paths. Let me try to illustrate this.
Today you will find many Christian people interested in prophecy, things to come. That in itself is not bad. However, it bears that we ask the question, why are they seeking this prophetic wisdom? Is it to help teach others of the pending doom, or are they just concerned about their own future path? If you stop to think about it, we as Christians will not be here anyway when much of the book of the Revelation that God shared with John takes place. So why then is there all the great concern? The Bible far more often tells us to share the gospel than to worry about our tomorrow. There is much more in God’s Word about how we should live for Christ today than there is about the coming apocalypse. However, if you want to fill a sanctuary put together a study on end times and people come running.
Why, well I believe it is because most people are more interested with MY path and MY way than they are with THY path or THY way. If we can ever get our eyes off self to see the Saviour, it will transform how we live our entire life.
Today, as you work, play, study, shop, or whatever you do, begin to ask God to direct you in His ways. Remember, if anyone could be a great guide in the path of your life, it would be the one who created both the path, and the one who walks it.
