“Do not curse the mother of the crocodile, when you have not yet crossed the river” (African proverb). Just because things are going well today doesn’t mean you’re entirely safe from danger: “Let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall” (1 Corinthians 10:12). We often face our greatest trials & temptations during moments of our greatest successes. This rhyme cautions: “Look where you are going, watch your steps/ As you journey on daily, the harder it gets/ Let God’s words direct you, as a lamp and a light/ Don’t you turn off the path, and you’ll end up right” (Karen Nurse-Quarm). Today’s successes and victories often invite tomorrow’s temptations and trials. Therefore watch your steps.—Samuel Koranteng-Pipim
