[The Lord] restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. – Psalm 32:3
The Lord leads David “in paths of righteousness”. The original text could also mean “the right paths”, which, admittedly isn’t very different given that it is God who is leading.
Isn’t it a comfort to know that wherever God leads His own, it will always be down a path that goes through and ends up in righteousness? If He will restore our souls and make us lie in green pastures (v.2), it will not be in any way that violates His standards of righteousness – in fact, it will result in us virtually resting in righteousness. How do we know this is so? Because He does it “for his name’s sake”. God will always be true to His revealed character (cf. 2 Tim. 2:13) and that is our guarantee that He will not fail in His promises. And one of those promises is that He will lead us down the right(eous) path.
Think: Romans 8:28
