Oh To Be Wise Meditations

Left and Right turns. While driving a car making left and right turns are very different in comparison. When turning right your circle is smaller if you drive on the right side of the road. This means the turn is tighter and if you are traveling at the same speed as if you were turning left you will have more lean. The other thing to consider is that if you go wide you will be crossing oncoming traffic. Is that not how life is when we try to do the right thing that is before us? We tend to overthink and miss the mark of things we thought we could easily do. Like talking with someone about something you thought was small and it becomes a huge distraction. Or doing a simple job that you do all the time but screwed it up somehow. Now left turns are dangerous because the driver must divert their attention to multiple hazards, including other vehicles, traffic lights, blind spots, and more. This type of maneuver is even harder when extra circumstances increase the risks associated with driving, such as night driving or poor weather. There is a way that seems right to a man but it leads to destruction. We need to go left but there so many variables and things to consider. Like should I move my family to a new home? Should I apply for a new job? Do I need to take this new opportunity and grow in it? Making a left is dangerous because sin and death are waiting for mistakes that we can make by ignorance and regret. Oncoming traffic needs to be vetted carefully and not rushed so you avoid a serious crash and burn in life. God help us, as we walk on the straight and narrow. In this life The Lord has given you trouble and sorrow as your food and drink. But now you will again see the Lord, your teacher, and he will guide you. Whether you turn to the right or to the left, you will hear a voice saying, "This is the road! Now follow it."

Meditate Prov. 3:6
