A Voice from the Past - Spurgeon

Slippery as the way is, so that I walk like a man upon ice, yet faith keeps my heels from tripping, and will continue to do so. The doubtful ways of policy are sure sooner or later to give a fall to those who run therein, but the ways of honesty, though often rough, are always safe. We cannot trust in God if we walk crookedly; but straight paths and simple faith bring the pilgrim happily to his journey's end.

Charles Haddon Spurgeon, 1834-1892, The Treasury of David, Vol. 1, Psalm XXVI (Hendrickson Publishers, p. 416)

What do we need to do to avoid living crookedly? How do we do it in a crooked world?
