There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way to death.
‘Seems right’. Feelings and human intuition are not our most reliable guides. Simply because something feels right or seems right does not necessarily mean it is right or even useful. Left unchecked this way may ‘seem right’ but often leads us astray. Our feelings and intuition must be informed by the indwelling Holy Spirit and the written word of God. As we submit to the Spirit and dwell on the Word of God, we are lead by God’s Spirit who brings to mind the Word with which we are becoming familiar. It is this relationship with God that leads us away from the death of the flesh into the life of the Spirit.
