SEEMS RIGHT

Read: Proverbs 21

Key Verse: “All a man’s ways seem right to him, but the Lord weighs the heart.” - Proverbs 21:2

Have you ever looked back at one of your decisions and realized that you could have made a better selection? The old phrase says: Hindsight is 20/20! Motives can be very deceptive. The right actions can have the wrong spirit underneath them. This verse highlights how human beings tend to think they are right and can fall short of God’s standard without even realizing it.

God never needs to use hindsight because He knows the past, present, and future already and perfectly! His knowledge is complete and perfect; His wisdom far exceeds ours! Why are we not quicker to fully trust Him and His Word? God has the final say and all authority belongs to Him! Next time you make a big decision, spend time in God’s Word, making sure it does more than just seem right. It needs to be in alignment with God’s Word and the Holy Spirit!
