WALK IN WISDOM
TEXT: EPHESIANS 5: 15, 16
â€œSee then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evilâ€ (Ephesians 5: 15, 16).
In the book of Proverbs we are admonished that: â€œWisdom is the principal thing; therefore get wisdom: and with all thy getting get understandingâ€ (Proverbs 4: 7). Walking in wisdom is mandatory for every Christian youth. As a Christian, be guided by wisdom in all you do. William Ward counsels: â€œBefore you speak, listen; before you write, think; before you spend, earn; before you invest, investigate; before you criticize, wait; before you pray, forgive; before you quit, try; before you retire, save and before you die, give.â€ This is lovely! A counsel that cuts across all age groups. Meditate on it and so may you walk in wisdom. Our text advises that we should walk in wisdom in these evil days. No youth should walk carelessly like Diana Jacob, who got into trouble of immorality with a young prince. Rather, you should be prudent in all things. Take each step of your life with Jesus. Flee sinful associations and cling to Godâ€™s Word. Also, pray and share your faith with others. Jealously guard your salvation and God will help you to walk in wisdom.
Challenge: Walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise.
Prayer: Dear Lord, please help me to walk in wisdom before you.
Quote: Take each step of your life with Jesus.
