CHAPLAIN'S CORNER: IT SEEMS RIGHT
By Jerroll Martens, Newton Presbyterian Manor chaplain
“There is a way which seemeth right unto a man ...” Proverbs 14:12 We have all probably been there. Driving down the road, thinking we are on the right one, only to find out we are the wrong road. Somewhere we missed the right turn. Thinking we are right does not make it so. When it comes to spiritual matters, we need to be right, not just what seems right to us. Notice our text talks about what seems right to us as human beings. Being human and sinners, we dare not trust our own conclusions. We need to trust someone who always knows what is true, and that is God. Finding truth is not difficult. The Bible tells us about a God who is always right. His Son, Jesus Christ, declared that He, himself, is the way, the truth and the life. Let’s not risk spiritual matters by coming to our own conclusions without going to God’s wonderful book of truth, the Bible. In it we will find unchanging, eternal truth which will put us on the right road.
