The Apostle Paul wrote these words to followers of Jesus in the city of Ephesus. (4:1-2)
“I therefore, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another in love, eager to maintain the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.”
Glen was a young Inuit boy who had a distinctive way of walking. Even at play, he maintained a stiff legged walk as if his knees would not bend. He was eventually seen by a Doctor, arranged by a concerned school teacher. Nothing was wrong with Glen’s legs. Then it was discovered why Glen walked as he did. It was his personal choice. It was because of Glen’s father, David. His Dad was the best hunter and trapper in town and Glen loved his Dad. Glen’s Dad had two artificial legs from his knees down. Glen, because he loved his Dad, walked like his Dad did.
The Apostle Paul wrote these words to the followers of Jesus in the city of Ephesus (5.1).
“Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”
Our love for God is measured, by our walk with God. How we walk our walk with God, matters.
If our thinking motivates how we walk our walk with God, then how we think, matters.
