"Your Shoe's Untied."

Each morning as I begin my day, I tie my shoes.  You could even say, it's a second nature to me.  No one has to tell me to do this.  I know this action will insure my physical safety throughout the day.  

I really hate seeing shoestrings flopping around someone’s ankle.  I know the danger that awaits that person and I'm compelled to warn them,  “Your shoe's untied."

Rarely, does a person who’s been warned ignore the words.  They stop and tie their shoe because they also know the danger of an untied shoe.

But what about my spiritual shoes?  What can I do to insure they are properly tied?  Meet with God!

O God, my God! How I search for you! How I thirst for you in this parched and weary land where there is no water. How I long to find you! How I wish I could go into your sanctuary to see your strength and glory, for your love and kindness are better to me than life itself. How I praise you! I will bless you as long as I live, lifting up my hands to you in prayer. At last I shall be fully satisfied; I will praise you with great joy.   Psalm 63:1-5 (TLB)

Yup! Meet with God. 

When we choose to go about our day with our spiritual shoes untied, we set ourselves up for a fall.  If you've ever taken a physical fall from untied shoes, you are careful to never repeat that experience.


The same holds true for those floppy spiritual shoestrings.  They are a spiritual hazard.  Do you really want to run the risk of falling? 

Before you leave the house today, make sure your shoes are tied.  Then tie up those spiritual shoe strings by meeting with God.
