?Wisdom is the principle thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understanding.? (Proverbs 4:7)
These are not new words, not to many Christians and not to Andy Stanley, Pastor of North Point Church in Alpharetta, GA.
In his book, ?The Principle of the Path: How to Get From Where You Are to Where You Want to Be?, these words are expounded in an authentic, genuine, conversational style prompting the reader to consider many of the choices made in their lives in light of an unyielding principle.
So simple and still so profound is the key message ?Direction ? not intention ? determines your destination.? With engaging and often comical recollections of his sometimes ?unwise? decisions, Pastor Stanley addresses many of the causes and effects of the decisions we make.
I particularly enjoyed the reference to Shanti Feldman?s book, ?For Parents Only? and the study claiming that the frontal lobe of the human brain does not fully develop until the mid twenties offering a physical cause for the ?mistakes of youth?.
Bible study students will identify with the many references to Proverbs and the examination of two great Old Testament men, King David and his son Solomon.
Perhaps the most resilient herald in the book is the statement that the Principle is unyielding, unforgiving, and not prejudicial. You will reach the destination of the path you are on. It is in your best interest to acknowledge and examine the direction you are headed.

As an additional bonus, a 10 Lesson Study Guide is included in the back of the book providing those interested in delving deeper and applying the ideas presented . A great resource and compliment to the book.
-You don?t have problems to fix; you have directions that need to change.
-Choosing the right path begins with submission, not information.
-One never accomplishes the will by breaking the law of God, violating the principles of God, or ignoring the wisdom of God.
-Asking doesn?t mean you lack wisdom - it?s evidence of wisdom.
-We don?t drift in good directions. We discipline and prioritize ourselves there.
