The way of the Lord is perfect, Way of Lord is strength to the upright

The way of the LORD is a refuge for the righteous, but it is the ruin of those who do evil.
[Proverbs 10:29]

Path or way are very important in life as it help us travel to a destination. We have see many way in our life and possible traveled in a lot by now.. All these are physical ways, but apart from the physical ways that we had seen there are many other which are not visible but are equally effective as the physical ones... These are not the visible kind of ways, as the roads or highways etc... Even though there is difference when compared to the visibility of the 3 kind mentioned above and those which we see and travel regularly, there are many common factors, and this post will help highlight those which effect our life directly. 

The way of the Lord is perfect, Way of Lord is strength to the upright. There are 3 kinds of path / way mentioned in the Bible, and all these are available in the book of Proverbs.

Way of the Righteous


The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
[Proverbs 4:18]

Light signifies purity, freshness, energy, blessings etc... When talking about dawn, we can think about sun and the brightness and freshness it brings to nature. New day comes through light and with this light the darkness from the previous night is taken off. Sun enlightens nature and all its system and all in it. It renews earth and helps life to sustain. Seeds and seasons to pass. All these can happen only if the sun comes with its light and energy. Sun has no value if it looses its light. Can we imagine a sun with no light, as with no sun there will be total darkness and then how can we expect darkness to remove darkness. With sun with its light and energy how can the life on this earth be sustained and nature be blessed. Now this said, if we try to understand the verse in context it is trying to say that the path or way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, i.e. its like the shining light of the rising sun.
