"HIS WAY IS THE RIGHT WAY"
DR. JAMES MERRITT
PSALM 23:3
9-24-00

INTRODUCTION

1. THEY CAN MAKE YOU, THEY CAN BREAK YOU. THEY CAN PUT SCARS
ON YOUR SOUL, OR STARS IN YOUR HEART. A BAD ONE CAN RUIN A LIFE
FOREVER, A GOOD ONE CAN REDEEM A LIFE FOREVER. YOU WILL
FREQUENTLY REJOICE OVER THE GOOD ONES, AND YOU WILL FOREVER REGRET
ALL THE BAD ONES. WHAT AM I TALKING ABOUT? DECISIONS,
DECISIONS, DECISIONS. THEY CAN MAKE YOU BAD, GLAD, OR SAD.

2. I READ ABOUT A MAN WHO HAD PLACED SOME FLOWERS ON THE GRAVE

THAT CAUSED THIS MAN HIS PROBLEM, IT WAS THE DECISION TO BECOME
THE SECOND HUSBAND THAT NAILED HIM TO THE WALL.

5. WE ALL FACE DECISIONS IN LIFE. YOU ARE HERE TODAY BECAUSE
YOU MADE A DECISION TO BE HERE. REALLY LIFE IS JUST ONE DECISION
AFTER ANOTHER. IN THIS VERSE KING DAVID SHARES TWO WONDERFUL
TRUTHS WITH US. HE SHARES WITH US THAT GOD WILL LOVE US ENOUGH
TO CORRECT US WHEN WE MAKE THE WRONG DECISIONS, AND HE WILL LEAD
US TO MAKE THE RIGHT DECISIONS. YOU NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT
GOING HIS WAY BECAUSE HIS WAY IS THE RIGHT WAY.

6. THERE ARE SOME HERE TODAY WHO HAVE GOTTEN OFF THE RIGHT ROAD
