For the adventurous among us, there are some exciting and dangerous treks that you can take.  I’ll mention three (see attached photos) that I’ve taken from a list of the world’s top ten most dangerous hikes.

 

One is Mount Huashan in China.  It is a very steep mountain, with sheer drops of hundreds of feet.  The trail leaves you breathless.  In Spain there is a similar trail called the “Caminito del Rey.”  Many have died hiking that trail.  In fact, for some years the government closed the trail because of a spate of deaths there. 

 

My family and I have actually hiked the third trail I’ll mention.  It is called the Bright Angel Trail.  It is in the Grand Canyon.  Strangely enough, it may be the most dangerous of all.  Part of the reason it is so dangerous is because it is so close to civilization.  The beauty is alluring but the dangers are real.  110 degree temps in the summer.  Lack of water.  Dehydration.  Steep cliffs.  Overconfident hikers.  Strenuous climb—basically one mile up over 9.5 mile hike.  Each year there are about 200 rescues attempted.  About 12 people per year die at the Canyon. 

 

Life itself is a hike.  It’s a trek.  There is alluring beauty all around us but also hidden dangers.  This is true for your family.  You’re on a journey together and God wants you to make it to the destination safely.  To do so we must “watch our walk.”

 

In Ephesians 5:15-21 we will learn how to fight for our family by walking a secure, sensible, and spiritual path.

“Watch Your Walk!”

Ephesians 5:15-21

    • Understand the requirement (Eph. 5:18)
    • Understand the results (Eph. 5:19-21)
