Ephesians 5:15 (KJV) The Foolish and The Wise

Ephesians 5:15 (KJV)
See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
We have here a definition of the wise walk and the foolish walk, all wrapped up in one word, circumspectly.
The word means “carefully, diligently and with an eye all around; on guard for temptations wherever they may appear.”
  • The foolish are not careful
  • The wise are
John Gill writes of this passage,
“such walk like fools,
  • whose eyes are not upon their ways; 
  • who walk in their own ways, which are crooked, and ways of darkness, and lead to destruction; 
  • who walk after the flesh, and naked, without the garments of a holy life and conversation; and with lamps, but no oil in them: 
and such walk as wise men, who
  • walk according to the rule of God’s word, 
  • make Christ their pattern, 
  • have the Spirit for their guide, and 
walk as becomes the Gospel of Christ; inoffensively to all men,
  • in wisdom towards them that are without, and 
  • in love to them that are within; and 
  • as pilgrims and strangers in this world, looking for a better country; and
  • so as to promote the glory of God, and the good of souls.
