Today's Photograph . . . . Be Careful How You Walk, Not As Unwise Men . . . Gila Monster in Southern Arizona (Randy E)
Bible Study Verse
Therefore be careful how you walk, not as unwise men but as wise, making the most of your time, because the days are evil. (NASB)
See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. (KJV)
Thoughts Anyone who has hunted for very long has come to understand the importance and value of the walk. To be a consistently successful hunter, one must walk well. Paying attention to changes in wind direction, looking for good cover to prevent long periods of exposure, and careful foot placement with each step are priorities.
When the walk becomes a stalk, paying attention to these priorities is usually the difference between success and failure. I have bagged several animals because others walked carelessly and I capitalized on their errors.
Action Point The Holy Spirit gives us the reason for walking as "wise" men and women of God:
"So that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world, holding fast the Word of life, so that in the day of Christ I will have reason to glory because I did not run in vain nor toil in vain," Philippians 2:15-16 (NASB).
So, how are you walking?
Sportsmen's Tip of the Day When purchasing a new pair of hunting boots or shoes, look for something with a medium soft sole. These soles grip better than hard soles and make a lot less noise, especially in cold weather. After you get your new shoes, show others how to walk in them!
