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

The path in life we take may seem agreeable and pleasing to us…it may even seem quite innocent.  But it’s our motives that are weighed by the Lord. (Proverbs 16:2)  For if we do things with the motive of “What can I get out of this”, or solely for the reason of pride or selfish gain, it will only lead to destruction.   Jesus spoke of this in Matthew 7:13-14 when He warned, “Enter through the narrow gate.   For wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction, and many enter through it.  But small is the gate and narrow is the road that leads to life, and only a few find it.”
