Watch Where You're Going!

“No man ever fell into error through being too watchful.” – C.H. Spurgeon

Have you ever seen someone walking while texting or even worse, watching a video while attempting to cross the street? Unfortunately, I have seen people do both… and it’s scary. Often, they will have ear buds in or headphones on and, as a result, are totally oblivious to their surroundings such as cars, trucks, buses, bikes, motorcycles and yes, even trains. How they escape with their lives, I do not know and sadly, some of them don’t.

Jesus reproved the Pharisees for their outward legalism using similar language in Matthew 15. When the Pharisees criticized Jesus’s disciples for eating food with unwashed hands, He turned the tables on them. “Not what goes into the mouth defiles a man; but what comes out of the mouth, this defiles a man.”

After He was done speaking, Jesus’s disciples approached Him to say that His words had offended the Pharisees. “Let them alone,” Jesus said. “They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind leads the blind, both will fall into a ditch.”

My friend, texting while walking may cause you to trip and fall. Likewise, watching a video in a crosswalk may get you hit by a car. However, those injuries pale in comparison to the dangers involved in not looking where you are going from a spiritual point of view.

If you want to avoid a spiritual mishap (or worse), follow the instructions in Psalm 119:105…

“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
