The Ancient Paths – The Good Way

Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls. Jer. 6:16a

Do not be like Israel who said,

“We will not walk in them.”  Jer. 6:16b

The author of Hebrews seems to have Jer. 6:16 in mind when he warns,

“Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert,  where your fathers tested and tried me and for forty years saw what I did.  That is why I was angry with that generation, and I said, ‘Their hearts are always going astray, and they have not known my ways.’  So I declared on oath in my anger, ‘They shall never enter my rest.‘”  Heb. 3:7-11
