ponder the path

"Ponder the path of thy feet, and let all thy ways be established."

Proverbs 4:26

Our society was not designed to create philosophers.

To ponder a thing--to think deeply, carefully, logically, with a mind open to new discoveries--is an intrinsically human thing to do. It's just as human to avoid doing it. We can drown out thought with a million different distractions.

The fact is, most of us need to stop and do some serious pondering. It was true in Solomon's time and it's true now. We're all on a path. We may not be sure how we got on it. Maybe we got swept up with our peers, maybe our parents set us here. However we got here, we'd do well to stop and ask where it's taking us.

Every day, we put one foot in front of the other in a definite direction. Where are you going? Is the road you're on a useful one? Is it a path of praise? Are you walking in a way that invests in the future, both temporally and eternally? Ponder the path of thy feet, Solomon urges, and let all thy ways be established.
