"The path of life"

"Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore." The Psalmist well knew that to follow closely the path of right thinking, to accept God's thoughts and to follow His directing, brings peace and protection and the avoidance of retracing one's steps. In times of distress he turned to God in confidence and prayer, praising Him for His goodness and mercy; and in great humility he prayed, "Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord, my strength, and my redeemer." He knew from experience the great importance of watching thought, of being alert that the so-called evils of the world could neither deceive him nor entice him from the path of right thinking and living. He exhorted others to have confidence in God, to follow His guidance, and to obey His laws.

As recorded in Proverbs, King Solomon, who was accounted one of the wisest of men, warned his people of the vanity and wastefulness of false pleasurable pursuits, and showed them the wisdom of gaining spiritual understanding. We read in Proverbs, "When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee."
