How did you walk today?

The night is coming to a close. The books are tucked away and sleeping. The beagle is downstairs trying to talk her way out of a night in the box. And I have a few moments to look back over the day.

Did I walk today the Jesus walked?

Okay, did I take one or two steps the way he did?

This is a new way of putting the question as I pray my bedtime prayers. It seems much more pointed than the way I have done these reflections in the past. Oddly, it has even less wiggle room to let me off the hook for my sloppy and slothful ways.

Did you walk today as Jesus walked or did you walk the way of someone else?

One thought on “How did you walk today?

  1. Checking my individual footsteps is a challenge I intend to accept. I had been trying to assess my over-all day. I now realize that I usually focus on one situation or incident, then call the whole day “good” or “bad.” Yesterday was a couple steps forward, one big fall back incident, and mostly sitting in place. While just sitting, I did pray some, but I also rehearsed some criticisms of others I have been harboring. I am at the stage in life of mostly waiting by the side of the road. My physical footsteps are slow.
