Davidisms - Take the High Road, the Road Less Traveled

It’s hard to behave obediently when an offense has happened to you. To return someone’s anger with gentleness. But you must. It’s called taking the high road. The road less traveled. And as followers of Jesus, it’s the one - in obedience - we choose to take, knowing he has commanded us to take it. When we’re hurting, our natural human instinct is to retaliate and seek revenge. Don’t! Choose to be different. How? Take the high road. Keep your mouth shut. Don’t gossip or slander. Refuse to retaliate. Love your enemy. Bless those who persecute you. Leave revenge and justice to God (Deut. 32:35; Rom. 12:19). It’s repeated over and over in the Bible. God must think it’s important. Throughout Scripture, he shows us that his vengeance is much better than ours. When you choose to follow Jesus, you are choosing the road less traveled. God is on the high road. Not many others in this world are on it. That means you don’t have to worry about bumping into a lot of folks as you walk! It’s an easier and gentler road. And it’s also the road that leads to eternal life.
