Discipleship is like Riding a Bike—Keep Your Eyes on the Path and Yourself Away From Its Edges. (Proverbs 4:20-27)

Experienced cyclists and mature Christians both find that that accidents occur much less frequently if they keep their eyes on the path instead of other things. They also learn they are less likely to take painful spills if they stay in the middle of the path, rather than going as close to the edge as they think you can get away with.

That’s nothing new; Scripture recorded those dynamics thousands of years ago. Check out Proverbs 4:25-27.
