Watch the path of your feet
And all your ways will be established.
Do not turn to the right nor to the left;
Turn your foot from evil.
My wife and I love to walk. Walking is exercise, a time to unwind, talk and reflect.
Caroline Bay is our favourite walking place because it has established paths and the beach walk it offers.
Despite our familiarity with the path, we still need to be careful and watch our steps. It could be uneven surface, cracks, broken glass, or pebbles that can cause you to lose your balance, roll your ankle and cause injury.
And so it is with our daily lives. We need to be always watching the path that we are taking as Proverbs 4:26 begins.
It is primary for a Christian to walk the righteousness path.
“And having been set free from sin, you became slaves of righteousness, Paul exhorts in Romans 6:18
Proverbs 21:3 says, “To do righteousness and justice is more acceptable to the Lord than sacrifice.“
Evil is lurking everywhere. That is why we need to focus on our goal, who is Jesus Christ.
We should not turn to the left nor to the right.
And in case, we do get waylaid, turn to the wrong path, the evil path, we must turn our foot from evil, Proverbs 4:27 says.
Psalm 32:8 “I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you.”
Walking the righteousness path is a decision and commitment to listen, learn, and follow the counsel of the Lord.
It starts with watching the path that our feet are trodding on.
