Proverbs 4


Proverbs 4:26-27:


26 Ponder the path of your feet;
then all your ways will be sure.
27 Do not swerve to the right or to the left;
turn your foot away from evil.

Proverbs 4:26-27 (ESV)


What to say about this?  Ponder the path of your feet!  Consider where you are and where you're going.  If you don't put your feet in the wrong place, you won't be in the wrong place.


Consider, for example, the number of stories of a marriage falling apart that begin with a spouse being by themselves in a place where being alone just wasn't good.  Whether it was at a party or on a long trip or at a distant movie shoot location or in your own home on a rainy night.  Why did your feet put you there? 


Or the temptation to do other sinful things….where did your feet take you and why did you make that choice?


Likewise, you can choose to make your feet take you to places that will accomplish what you need.  When you wake up, make sure your feet are headed to the floor, to your Bible, to work, to school, wherever you need to be headed to! 


On Sundays, let your feet be with God's people to grow and worship.  Throughout the week, let your feet take you where there are people that need the love of Jesus. 


Then, what your hand finds to do, do it.  Let your feet put you in the right place so that your hands will have good work, your eyes see the glory of God, your mouth speak the truth to ears that need to hear.


After all, we all want beautiful feet. (Romans 10:9-13)
