Ephesians 5:15 NASB "So then, be careful how you walk, not as unwise people but as wise,"Knowing the different sound makes all the difference in the world! While walking out to ice fish, I began to hear the cracking of the ice! Early in the season, I know that sound to mean ice is being made but as the season begins to end, I know the sound means it's time to get off the ice! Today we are told to walk as wise people and to be careful where we walk! When another man comes out ice fishing with me and hears the cracking of the new ice being formed, they are very skeptical to keep going - only after I share that it's new ice being formed do they feel confident to keep going. In life, we will hear "cracks" in our walk but knowing the difference between the good cracking (where we are growing better) and the bad cracking ( where we are falling short) can make the difference between walking as wise men rather than foolish men. Let us be careful in where we walk and more importantly, why we walk where we do, hopefully it's to bring God glory! peace, tom P.S. Stay off the thin ice!
