Ephesians 5:8-15   Thought/Prayer:  He Walked Mincingly.  Topics:  2 at end.

“For you were once darkness, but are now light in the Lord. Walk as children of light, for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth, proving what is well pleasing to the Lord. Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather even reprove them. For the things which are done by them in secret, it is a shame even to speak of. But all things, when they are reproved, are revealed by the light, for everything that reveals is light. Therefore he says, “Awake, you who sleep, and arise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” 

Therefore watch carefully how you walk, not as unwise, but as wise; redeeming the time, because the days are evil.”  (WEB)  (Read these scriptures and more at http://prayerpivot.com.) 

“Watch carefully how you walk.”  Wisely.

Ever watched someone walking on a sheet?  No, not on top of their bed . . . but on top of a sidewalk sheeted with ice?  Recently I watched someone doing this – (but not on our driveway, glaringly sheeted over; he was mincingly traversing the slight downward hill of our front lawn).  The big man’s careful mini-steps, crunchy on iced grass, were especially necessary for safe traversing:  He was wearing one of those clunky black boot-things, a post-foot-surgery necessity.  He dared not fall!   

So why write about this?  Well, maybe there is a Biblical comparison here.  This scripture tells us to walk wisely, in a spiritual sense.  This guy’s careful footsteps weren’t spiritual (although I guess he could have been praying over each careful tread of a foot), but walking wisely was of the essence. 

And basically, why was he walking in a particularly calculated and wise manner?  He knew there was danger.  Yes, when we feel danger, do we not walk more carefully?

This scripture talks about the works of darkness and about evil days.  And, honestly, are we not always surrounded by this unholiness?  Not that every day is evil.  Not that we are always in darkness.  But it’s very scriptural to say that there is always evil and darkness on Earth.  God has allowed it for reasons far beyond us.  But we are to, with His guidance, overcome it.  We are to walk “wise”; and Christ is our wisdom:  I Corinthians 1:30:  “But you—and it is all God’s doing—are in Christ Jesus: He has become for us a wisdom which is from God, consisting of righteousness and sanctification and deliverance; . . .” (WEY)

So walk carefully whether on ice or otherwise.  When we do this, with a certain awareness of the chance of falling, we will receive wisdom; and we can pass this on to others who traverse slick pathways.  For those who struggle with obvious life/death decisions, our walking carefully and with wisdom, may make a huge difference in the safety of the preborn, the elderly, or others for whom we desire life.

Topics: Pray for wisdom and the ability to walk safely, under the observation of God, through life, and thusly make a difference!
