The Christian's Duty to Walk Wisely

82 pages2 hours


Matthew Mead (1630-1699) was an independent puritan divine, and popular reformed preacher.

God commands all Christians to walk wisely while they live in the world, (Eph. 5:15-16, “…walk circumspectly, not as fools but as wise.” Here, Matthew Mead delivers an unparalleled work on wise walking, specifically during times of temptation since, “the days are evil.” He then gives 7 main points, and 13 particular points to show the wisdom of walking wisely in any time of temptation. This is a rare puritan gem that should be in the hands of every believer that he might be armed against the attacks of Satan's temptations.

In the second half Mead’s teaches on Psalm 131:2, “My soul is even as a weaned child.” Here he shows the Christian how to die daily to the world, and where the grace of God takes hold of the soul, it makes it as a weaned child to all worldly things.
