So often we thwart our own holiness and happiness by going, both mentally and physically, where we don’t need to go.

Standard

Suppose a mean dog runs loose. He has attacked you three times on your way to work and bitten you twice. What are your options? Well, you can hope for the best. You can push aside the bad memories and tell yourself that maybe the dog is no longer there. You can even come equipped with pepper spray. But there’s another option. You can find a different route to work. So often we thwart our own holiness and happiness by going, both mentally and physically, where we don’t need to go. “Do not enter the path of the wicked, and do not walk in the way of the evil. Avoid it; do not go on it; turn away from it and pass on” (Proverbs 4:14-15).
