October 9-The Wrong Path

Scripture Lesson: Psalm 119:97-104

On this date in 1910 Nap Lajoie, in a batting race with Ty Cobb, collects eight hits in a season-ending double header against the Browns. The hits were somewhat tainted however, St. Louis third baseman Red Corridev, because of his tremendous dislike for Cobb, played back and Lajoie bunted safely six times for hits. Regardless, Cobb wins the batting title by a fraction of a point by sitting out the last two games.

Today’s Scripture lesson is part of the longest chapter in the Bible, Psalm 119. Verse 101 tells us that the Psalmist has kept his feet from every evil path so that he might obey God’s Word. In life we are faced with decisions that will test our resolve to do the right thing. The Psalmist’s desire is to follow the right path, that is God’s path. When we stray from God’s ways we also stray from His plan and following Him. Lajoie did not deserve to win the batting title because he chose the easy way out and bunted for hits. Corridev by playing back also chose the wrong path.

1. Think about a time you chose the wrong path.

2. What was the result?

3. How can we know what is the right path for us to follow?

When we spend time studying and living God’s Word, we will better be able to keep off every evil path. The right way is always the right way!
