The Lord proclaims:
Stop at the crossroads and look around;
ask for the ancient paths.
Where is the good way?
Then walk in it
and find a resting place for yourselves.
But you said, “We won’t go!” (Jer. 6:16)
Ancient paths really aren’t so “cutting edge.” It’s the invitation of God. When someone under 40 mentions them, then they seem so “cutting edge,” but the realization is those paths have been there.
They don’t “shout out” to us. They are there with the invitation from God.
It is a call to return. It’s not that hard. It’s rather simple.
We just want our “own path.” We want our “own rhythm.”
What we need is the rhythm of the Kingdom. We need to quit being stubborn and refusing the ancient path marked out for us.
