“Whoso walketh uprightly shall be saved: but he that is perverse in his ways shall fall at once.”
Most of us had a relative when we were younger that always reminded us to straighten up. Whether we were slouched over at the dinner table or slumped over as we walked down the street, we needed the reminder.
As Christians, we need reminded of the need to walk uprightly much more often than we were ever told to sit or stand up straight.
There is safety in walking uprightly.
“For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of his mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. He layeth up sound wisdom for the righteous: he is a buckler to them that walk uprightly.”
There are blessings available by walking uprightly.
“For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.”
There will be consequences when we neglect to walk uprightly.
“He that walketh uprightly walketh surely: but he that perverteth his ways shall be known.”
We reap what we sow; that phrase works both ways, positively and negatively. What are we sowing today that we may reap tomorrow?
“Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.”
Will you find safety and blessings or will you reap the consequences of neglecting to walk uprightly?
