Take The High Road? by Paul Marc Goulet

This season is focused on the fulfilled promise of a Messiah and His second coming. It makes us think about the long-term effects of our decisions because the promises of God are true. Which brings me back to the theme of faith.

Why did Mary say yes? Why did Joseph suck up his pride and obey? Because they believed.

“…‘Does the Lord delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices as much as in obeying the Lord? To obey is better than sacrifice, and to heed is better than the fat of rams.’” (1 Samuel 15:22, NIV)

Jesus said, “‘Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me.’” (Luke 9:23, NIV)

Have you ever sacrificed for God?

I was recently in a very tough situation. People around me seemed to be making bad decisions and letting their emotions get the better of them. I could’ve responded poorly and reacted to the stress. But instead, I went into prayer, and God spoke to my mind: take the high road.” Taking the high road is choosing to respond and not react. It’s making decisions based on the law of love.

Joseph chose to take the high road with his pregnant fiancée. The Bible says it this way: “Because Joseph her husband was faithful to the law, and yet did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.” (Matthew 1:19, NIV)

Advent encourages us to take the high road because we believe God is just and will make it right. If not in this lifetime, in the next one. And don’t forget the next one is forever.

I know people can be cruel with their words and actions.  The world is not just, but God is.

So I want to encourage you to take the high road this Advent season and watch God make it right for you.
