Practical Living through Biblical Principles

A Careful Walk

By Pastor Brenda Gray

Ephesians 5:15   See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise.

There are people who desire to climb mountains as a sport. The key is to make it safely to the top. In order for climbers to make it safely to the top, they must watch every step. If a person is not careful, he or she could fall on the journey. The keys to a successful climb are concentration and caution.

I can’t think of a better picture of what Paul is saying in Ephesians 5:15 when he says, “walk circumspectly.”   We should be very careful how we live. With all of life’s possible dangers coming our way as we climb through life, it is vital that we take each step with Jesus wisely and cautiously. A fool, the passage says, live carelessly: a wise person watches each step so he does not stumble or fall.

Something to think about: Our goal should be “imitators of God.” Through the Holy Spirit’s guidance, we can walk in a way that honors God. AS we trust God to rule our hearts, our feet can walk His way!

Prayer Starter: Father in the name of Jesus, my desire is not to walk as fools do but to walk wisely…
