Proverbs 14:12 ” There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.”

Everyday you see people doing what they think is the “right” thing…yes, they’re good people with good intentions…but unfortunately, they don’t have God in their world.  Their life consists of works and legalism…with a mental score-sheet that they keep track of their points…thinking that they can somehow work their way to heaven.   For they truly believe that a loving God would never deny a good person access to heaven.  But Jesus replied to this in Matthew 7:21 when He said, “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the Will of My Father who is in heaven.”  The world has its own standard of what being a good person and doing what seems to be right is…but it sadly falls eternally short of God’s standard.
