There is a way that seems right to some. On this way, they build a road of their very own. They learn skill, attain to education and develop in creativity and apply it with all they have in them -and they are well pleased in their undertakings – and call it good. They believe in Jesus and make sure they include Him and they would have it no other way for He is their Lord and deserves to be on their road! They are sure to let all who would listen know of all the work they have done and are quick to share their accomplishments as a result of all their dedication. They will even boast in all the wrongs that have been done against them along the way and make them into a badge they wear so as to receive special care and sympathy (for their persecution) by all those who will listen. They make sure that this road is furnished to suit them and make no allowances for challenge or disagreement, for who is to tell them how to build their road after all! So adjustments have been expertly devised for Jesus and His placement to accommodate accordingly. In this they have certain preferences that demand absolutely no admittance for Jesus and so they simply make partitions that blend in with the landscape and for the most part it goes unnoticed – as planned. On the rest of this road they slice Him up and strategically place Him in positions that are best suited to that specific need. They love Jesus they say with great passion and point out all the beautifully constructed banners and road signs they have made and go into all the detail and effort each one cost them to do. This has been a labor of love they maintain for it is their joy and service to Him. They are thankful that they have Jesus in their heart and more so that they are able to have Him walk with them – on their road. See also: Good Works & Dead Works
