Today's Photograph . . . . Oh Be Careful Little Feet Where You Go (MQ)
Bible Study Verses Psalm 56:13
For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life. (NIV)
Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched? (NIV)
Thoughts Our feet are critically important to our enjoyment of the outdoors! During a typical day of upland bird hunting, one walks many miles. Hunting antelope or stalking big game may require miles of hiking up, down, around and over difficult and treacherous terrain.
An army first sergeant told me, "Take care of your feet, and they will take care of you!" Then he gave specific instructions on how to do that.
Action Point Take care of your feet. Choose carefully where you go.
In the Bible, "feet" is often a word picture of what we do and where we go - a metaphor of our life style. Where we go, and what we choose to do is important. What we choose NOT TO DO may be more so!
We cannot go to places, and involve ourselves in things that tarnish our reputation. Often these things endanger our character, and even our bodies.
More importantly, we cannot do what will shame our Lord Jesus. A child's song says, "Oh be careful little feet where you go!" So true.
Sportsmen's Tip of the Day
Take care of your feet! Carefully choose the route, the path, that you take. Carry clean socks on extended walks or stays in the field and change them often. Stop occasionally, take off your shoes to allow your feet to dry a bit; and carry a good foot powder to put on them. Buy quality boots or shoes, as well as socks. If your feet are comfortable and well cared for, you won't even notice them. But if they are not, it is all you will notice!
