Davidisms - The Dangerous Path of Least Resistance

What’s the most dangerous path you can ever choose? The path of least resistance. As humans, we inherently resist what we perceive to be difficult. Anything we deem intimidating or arduous, we seek to avoid. Instead, we’re inclined to choose the path of least resistance. Whatever’s easiest. Requiring the least amount of effort. Labor. Hard work. But ironically, it’s the very lack of resistance that is most dangerous to us all. Why? Because the absence of difficulty leads to idleness. Laziness. Slothfulness. All of which can be deadly. In fact, laziness can shortchange us of realizing the very dreams that God placed in our hearts. Picture an archer drawing back the string on a bow. The arrow’s power is born from resistance - it’s what enables the arrow to reach its mark. Or consider how resistance training with weights or bands makes our muscles much stronger. The same is true in life. It’s the tension in the trials that tests our faith and produces perseverance (Romans 5:3-5). Perseverance is what propels us forward to achieve our dreams and keep hope alive. Next time you’re faced with a decision to make, remember this very important lesson: The most dangerous path in life is the one of least resistance.
