Ephesians 5:15 (NASB) "Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise,"There are two symbols on my snowblower, one is a turtle and the other a rabbit! The first time I used my new snowblower I thought I could keep up with it in the rabbit speed, boy was I sorry mistaken! Today's verse speaks to how we walk, and how wisdom plays a part! Not soon after I pushed the handle down did I find myself literally falling behind the snowblower as it took off! I was walking as an unwise person. I should have started out slowly and found out just how fast the new machine is! Many times in life we will find ourselves trying to go too fast, whether walking or driving, or just trying to get things done. Inevitably, we may have to learn today's verse the hard way. Let's not run ahead of God or the Holy Spirit but walk carefully as wise men, rather than find ourselves falling to our knees for the wrong reason! peace, tom
