A Foolish Walk or a Wise Walk?“See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. And be not drunk with wine, wherein is excess; but be filled with the Spirit;”Ephesians 5:15–18Timothy Treadwell loved wildlife. He spent summers in Alaska camping in the wild. Treadwell especially loved grizzly bears. He believed that he had a special connection and relationship with the bears, and ignored the warnings of park rangers and others who tried to tell him that the wild animals were dangerous. In 2003, Treadwell stayed in the Katmai National Park after the summer ended despite the fact that bears become more dangerous in the fall. In October, Treadwell was attacked and killed by a bear. He was confident that he had made friends with the bears and that they would not harm him, but he was tragically wrong.The world is full of people who are living foolishly, and a number of them are Christians. Rather than walking according to God’s direction given in the Bible, they choose to go their own way, ignoring the fact that we do not have the necessary insight and wisdom to choose the right path on our own. “O LORD, I know that the way of man is not in himself: it is not in man that walketh to direct his steps” (Jeremiah 10:23).The wise walk is only available to those who are willing to walk in the Spirit—to trust God’s wisdom above their own and follow it. The will and purpose of God for our lives is not hidden, but shown to us in the pages of Scripture. Through the indwelling Holy Spirit, we have the ability to read and apply the truths of God’s Word to the daily decisions of life. We walk wisely when we walk obediently.Today’s Growth Principle:
If we are not walking in the Spirit, we will constantly stray into foolish errors with negative consequences.
