The local high school band can be seen practicing their marching in the school parking lot just before the start of a new school year. How well they do practicing in the school parking lot shows up on the football field on Friday nights. Hundreds of fans like me sit high up in the stands watching the band’s every move. When someone messes up their marching, it is easy to see from the stands.
As believers we have people watching our steps, when we mess up it has an effect on the Kingdom. Accountability partners, studying God’s Word and prayer are great activities to do before we start the day.
Galatians 5:25 (NIV)
25 Since we live by the Spirit, let us keep in step with the Spirit.
