(Proverbs 2:8 KJV) He keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of his saints.
We are to walk on the “paths” (734) of “judgement” (justice NASB) (4941). This is so obvious you might wonder why it is repeated so often, but the call to obedience and justice resound through scripture.
I think that we need to be reminded because we tend to substitute our personal “paths” (734) for God’s and we fall for the culture’s definition of “justice” (4941) because we hear it so much. Perhaps the KJV use of “judgement” would be better for us.
How do we know the path that God would have us walk? Some are universal to all mankind. They are not personally tailored to our personality and gifts. A brief summary can be found in the Ten Commandments of Exodus 20 as well as being restated other places. There is no wiggle room. The vocabulary is clear.
So? Basics. Basics. Basics. They are the key to victory in sports and business. It is no less true in our spiritual walks.
