“The way of life winds upward for the wise,
That he may turn away from hell below.” Proverbs 15:24………
Have you ever been walking or driving in one direction only to figure out you’re going the wrong way and need to turn around and go the right way? Sometimes we walk or drive the wrong way because we’re guessing which way to go. Other times, we go the wrong way on purpose for whatever reason. Sometimes we’re misled because someone gave us wrong directions. But how fortunate we are when we’re given the opportunity to turn around. Praise the Lord for this awesome blessing of a scripture in which He gives us perfect directions. Every human will spend forever in heaven with God or hell and the lake of fire in everlasting torment apart from God. We’re all sinners hell-bound unless we turn from our wrongdoing and put our faith in Jesus Christ as Lord who died on the cross to take our sin punishment for us and was raised from the dead whereby we now turn our lives over to the Lord who is upward! The wise person, the Lord tells us in this verse, lives his or her life facing upward toward the Lord instead of downward toward hell.
