“A bear, however hard he tries, grows tubby without exercise.”
– A.A. Milne
God likes to walk (Genesis 3:8) and commands us to walk (Deuteronomy 8:6).
He suggests we wear sensible clothing when we walk (1 Samuel 17:39).
Jesus spent a lot of time walking (Matthew 4:18, 14:25-26, Mark 6:48-49).
Walking signifies healing (Matthew 15:31, Acts 3:8).
It is part of believing (Luke 9:5).
And it makes God happy when we do (3 John 1:4).
This devotional is somewhat tongue in cheek but God only gave us one body. If we don’t care for it, how will we be able to care for others?
I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking… (3 John 1:4a, NIV).
Prayer -Lord, may we give you joy! Amen
