Word Filled Wednesday – Watch the Walk

So then each of us shall give account of himself to God.  Therefore let us not judge one another anymore, but rather resolve this, not to put a stumbling block or a cause to fall in our brother’s way.  Romans 14:12-13

Recently while on vacation at the beach, a woman who was staying at the same place as my family came up to me to tell me about the place offering free surf lessons.  She knew from simply observing us, where we were staying, who all was in the family and what they enjoyed about the beach.
Perhaps she was just an observant mama, but it was a great reminder that people do watch us when we are living out our daily lives.  As Christians, we should strive to live a life of purity and stand out from the world.  Our words, actions and attitudes should be different and our Christian lives should consistently reflect Christ. 
As we relate to others around us, may we be mindful not to judge, but resolve to not let our behavior, attitudes, habits or lifestyle cause another to stumble.  As in the picture my boys follow each other, may we lead others with our daily actions to point to the Lord.  People are watching…let’s show them Jesus!


  1. Awesome!!!!!!!!

  2. Something to remember every morning as we head out - others truly are watching, observing...and often make judgments about the Christ we serve.

    Hope the surf lessons were fun!!
