We have come across narrow
way and broad way in the Bible many times and we understand that Narrow way is
troublesome and Broad way is so much flexible. Also, we see there are other
ways mentioned in the Bible, the ways which
we need to follow and the ways which
we need to avoid, to enter to the eternal life & to follow Jesus.
The ways which we need to AVOID
1. The way of Lazy (Proverbs 15:19)
The way of a sluggard is like a hedge of thorns, but the path of the upright is a level highway.

Her house is the way to hell….

Leave your simple ways, and live, and walk in the way of insight.
So, you will walk in the way of the good and keep to the paths of the righteous.
9. The way of Wisdom
(Proverbs 4 :11)
I have taught you the way of wisdom; I have led you in the paths of uprightness.
10. The way of Upright/honest
The highway of the upright is to depart from evil: he that keepeth his way preserveth his soul
We see Jesus made the claim, “I am the way and the
truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me” (John 14:6).
Through this verse we understand that Jesus is the only way to get eternal
life. To follow Jesus is nothing but following his ways which we have to and
unfollowing the ways which we need to avoid.
As always said, we should thank
God for his ways are unlike our ways, and for his ways being higher than ours.
