Tempted to get off the narrow road?


Let not your heart envy sinners,
but continue in the fear of the Lord all the day.
Surely there is a future,
and your hope will not be cut off. —
Proverbs 23:17-18 

Warning:  Life’s a dangerous journey.  You will face the temptation to get off the narrow road, to go off-roading, where it looks more “fun.”

However, Proverbs tells us that if you start being envious of things that aren’t healthy for you, and envious of sinners, there is no future.  You will have no hope for eternity.

Don’t envy those with no hope, but “continue in the fear of the Lord.” Stay on the narrow road.
