Story of the day: Mall Walking
I love to go to the mall and sit and watch people. Each to his/her own has a unique walk. Some walk according to how quickly they need to get to the stores with the greatest sales. Others walk the mall just to exercise. Some enjoy the company of others, so their walk may be a little slower as to not pass the time as quickly. Either way, everyone has a unique walk and a different purpose for why they are at the mall.
“The Bible instructs us: “Walk in love, as Christ also has loved us”(Eph. 5:2) and to “walk in wisdom”(Col. 4-5). I ask myself, “Does my walk reflect God’s love and wisdom?” Am I “pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy”? (James 3:17) Do I have love, joy, and peace? Am I tranquil and strong? What do others see as I walk by?
George MacDonald said, “If you who set yourselves to [theorize about] Christianity had set yourselves instead to do the will of the Master, the one object for which the gospel was preached to you, how different would be the condition of the part of the world with which you come into contact.” How different indeed!
Is your life making a difference in the lives around you? Do others see Jesus in what you say and do?” (Roper, David)

Bible verse of the day: Ephesians 5:2
“And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma.”
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank You for my walk. I pray that my walk is a resemblance of Who You are and that others may see You through it. Father just as James 3:17 stated, may my walk remain pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. I pray that You continue to guide my walk, that I may follow the path that You are placing before me. May I continue to walk in love and may my walk be full of wisdom so that it reflects Your Love and Wisdom. I thank You for this day!
In Jesus Name I pray,
