'FALSE WAY'

"Therefore I esteem all Your precepts concerning all things to be right, and I hate every false way" - Psalm 119:128
.
There are two major ways in life: false way and the way of truth. Many ply the false way because it's accommodating (Matt. 7:13) and it's only few that tread the way of truth that leads to life (Matt. 7:14).
.
False way is the way of lies, deception, unrighteousness, pride, stealing and so on; it's the way of sin. It's the path that seems right but whose end leads to destruction (Prov. 14:12).
.
Do you hate false way? Until you esteem His precepts to be right in all things, you won't hate it.
.
Joseph hated the false way that's why he fled the appearance of evil. Telling a woman you love her when your motives are evil is false (deceit).
.
Unjust gain, manipulating figures and doing shoddy deals are false way. Meanwhile, you can't live right in life if you have not hated the false way. If you don't embrace the rightness of His law, you won't hate the false way.
.
False way will bring temporary pleasure but permanent scar. Adam and Eve chose the false way and they permanently suffered the consequence. The false way is the way of sin and the wages of sin is death (Rom. 6:23).
.
The natural man can't hate the false way because he's inclined to walk in it. But those who have given their lives to Christ and are walking in His way would hate the false way.
.
Have you discovered false way in your life: career, business, academics, marital life, finances and so on? There's need to evaluate yourself so that you can ask for His grace to hate them.
.
Moreover, those who do not esteem His precepts to be right in all things and are following it will be vulnerable to walking in the false way. And those who tread the false way are God's enemies.
.
Lord, search me and know my heart, try me and know my thoughts if there is any wickedness in me and lead me in the way everlasting.
