The High Road

Allow me to take you down a road. It is not an easy one to travel. It is a silent ride while you hang on tight and hold back. It doesn’t have a lot of rest stops, and it definitely has a speed limit. If you exceed the speed limit, you will be sorry, and there is a violation. It is not a road that is widely traveled. It may feel like you are on this road for miles before you reach your destination. What is the point of arrival? It is a view that is peaceful, serene, and filled with positive vibes.

The road has a name. It is called the high road. Have you ever been there? I have. It hasn’t been comfortable or smooth terrain. Unexpectedly, there is construction. The construction site takes a first response along a detour. The diversion allows time to go out of the way, rebuild thoughts, and form the right response when faced with lots of congestion beyond one’s control.

How does the urban dictionary define the high road? Here it is: “high road refers to a higher moral ground. The expression, “Taking the high road” refers to being a “‘class act’ during a very difficult time.”

How does scripture (the ultimate class act) define the high road? One verse that explains it clearly is Colossians 4: “Let your speech be always with grace, seasoned with salt, that ye may know how ye ought to answer every man.”

The low road is the antithesis of this verse. The low road involves being unforgiving, careless with words, and not thinking before you speak. The high road is black and white and leads to the beautiful view of peace and serenity.

Which road will you travel today?

    Hi Sister Linda
    After these weeks of confinement, it was lovely traveling down the road you were describing. Normally I drive heavy footed, but ready your blog had me peacefully cruising down a country road taking in the beauty of your message. Have a blessed day.
