“Look carefully then how you walk, not as unwise but as wise, making the best use of the time, because the days are evil.”Ephesians 5.14-15
In 2019, our family spent a lovely week exploring Arches National Park. We decided to visit the famous “Delicate Arch” (ubiquitously seen on most Utah license plates). While the hike was not a difficult one, there were a few tricky sections that demanded more focus on our feet and less focus on the scenery.
To get to the arch itself, visitors had to walk carefully around a basin-like dip. My husband and kids–who were far more courageous than me–told me that on the other side of the arch was a steep cliff. The key to safely going on any hike is to have a little forethought.
Start early (especially in hot weather)
Wear appropriate footwear.
That hike was truly delightful. We saw some wildlife, enjoyed the wildflowers, and, of course, caught some epic scenery. We left the trail in the late morning just as it was getting a little too hot.
In your walk with Christ, do you exercise the same careful planning?
Do you bring the water of life with you wherever you go?
Do you begin and end your day with the Lord of Creation?
Are your feet prepared to go forward with the gospel? (Ephesians 6)
As you and I step into another new year, let’s step into it with wisdom! This month’s scripture writing plan has 3 sections:
- We are called to walk in wisdom
- Wisdom is found in Christ our Lord and Savior
- Walking with Christ requires us to behave with wisdom
It is common to set new goals/intentions/resolutions during this time of year, but more than anything, I want to encourage you to draw closer to the Lord. Step into each day, each week, each month, and each year with Him, listening to what He has to say and obeying His commands. This is the most important choice we make and it has to be made again and again, day after day.
