How do you
walk? Do you walk quickly, getting from A to B in the shortest possible time
or perhaps meander, taking in the views, chatting to folk along the way? Do
you walk in the correct manner; heel through the foot to toe, evenly
distributing your weight? Easier said than done. A moment's lapse in
concentration and you could lean slightly to one side. Perhaps you won’t
notice but look at the soles of your shoes; is one side more worn than the
other? Oops!. Not so easy this mundane activity.
walk with 'phone in hand, so as not to waste a moment of your time? Is
walking a pleasure, come rain or shine? You do your 10,000 steps - and so
often many more - feeling ever so slightly smug when your pedometer or
FitBit signals that you have completed your task.
How do you
walk through life? The same way, head down, avoiding any distractions, doing
what you have to do and no more? Is everything you do correct and who
decided it was so? Have you ever thought about doing things
differently? Is that scary or exciting?
aware that Jesus is walking beside you every step of the way, both the fast
hurry hurry steps and the more leisurely thoughtful steps, and even the
tricky ones in between? Jesus walked far in his life and experienced many
things; so why not talk as you walk as he is a great listener.
