Walk This Way: Walk a Teaching Path

Every day you and I face a variety of choices regarding the path we take.  Many things influence our decisions for both good and bad, yet God wants us to choose daily to walk according to His ways.  Over the next 5 days I will be sharing from the devotional journal, “Walk This Way”, with the prayer that it helps you to grow in your walk with God as you pursue a greater understanding of the path He calls you to.

Here is day twenty-seven with an important reminder that walking God’s way will lead you on a path of truth.

Walk a Teaching Path

“These commandments that I give you today are to be upon your hearts.  Impress them on your children. Talk about them when you sit at home and when you walk along the road, when you lie down and when you get up.
Deuteronomy 6:6-7 (NIV)

From whom did you learn the spiritual truths that you follow?  What were the settings for some of your greatest spiritual lessons?  What was the stated purpose of Jesus, according to Mark 3:14, in calling the twelve to Himself?  What methods did Jesus use to prepare these disciples to become the apostles?  Do you see yourself as a teacher?  Who do you spend the most time with?  Are you teaching them?  Are they teaching you?  Who could you influence in a positive way if you saw every interaction as a teaching opportunity?

As God called His people out of slavery to follow Him, He gave them His laws and commands to follow.  He gave instructions for the people to keep God’s teachings before them at all times.  As you pray, ask God to help you become comfortable in sharing His Word wherever you are.  Pray that you would walk a teaching path, having God’s instructions on your lips in your conversations everywhere.  Pray that you would see the value of relationships in teaching others to know God and follow His truth.

In prayer,
