Ponder The Path Of Thy Feet
TEXT: Proverbs 4:25-27, "Let thine eyes look right on, and let thine eyelids look straight before thee.  Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established.  Turn not to the right hand nor to the left: remove thy foot from evil."
ILLUS: When I was a little boy, living in Port Chicago, I used to walk the railroad tracks. It was kind of fun just to see how long you could stay on the track before falling off—the track was very narrow, and though easy to get on, it was also easy to fall off.
When you think about it, the path of life is much like that—especially for the Christian. God has a path all mapped out for us. He put us on that path the day we got saved. Psalm 37:23 says, "The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: and he delighteth in his way."

Now, let's come to our message; "Ponder the Path of Thy Feet." Three things:
I. Enter the Path of Righteousness
II. Follow the Path of Assuredness
III. Avoid the Path of Darkness

Proverbs 12:28 says, "In the way of righteousness is life; and in the pathway thereof there is ...
