Watch Out For

“Watch where you walk!”

This common statement/command/admonishment/wisdom says much in four words!

This popped up earlier today as I gingerly tiptoed down an icy driveway to get my second COVID shot.

Years ago our black Lab reminded me of this on our morning walk along a trail, across which geese had trod and left reminders of their presence.

Zoe, the black Lab, led me down a another path, while I absentmindedly was not watching where I was walking.

Paul wrote in a letter  to his community in Ephesus (5.15) “See then that you walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise.”

I acted wisely this morning.

Because of canine wisdom I acted wisely.

Did Paul have a black Lab or walked with ice on the road?

“Lord, may we walk and act wisely.

May we learn from all your creatures the ways of wisdom”
