In today’s information age, with the prevalence of the internet, one almost instantaneously thinks of the letters “www” as the “World Wide Web”.
But there are other “www”‘s that have been discussed. One that is often quoted to be the downfall of any “man” is the pursuit of Wine, Wealth and Women.
The Bible says, that is not befitting of Kings and Princes to be given to Wine (Proverbs 31:4-5), lest they forget the law and pervert justice. It also counsels that one ought not to give their strength/ways to Women (adulterous) for in the end it leads to destruction (Proverbs 31:3). Jesus states that “no man can serve to masters – God and mammon (wealth)” (Luke 16:13).
While these three ‘w’s have to do with what not to do, I like to look at the positive side of things – three ‘w’s that we ought to do as God’s children (Christians) and that is
Words, Walk and Work
We ought to speak and proclaims the Word of God (Jesus who became flesh) as recorded in John 1:1, the words of God that he wants us to tell this untoward generation (Acts 2:40) whether it is to encourage someone or warn them of God’s justice. Not only are we responsible to speak the words given to us, we ought to also Walk in his ways a.k.a. live a Godly life. Furthermore, it is required of us to not just be mouthpiece priests and pundits, but we must also be laborers (workers) in God’s good earth, following his commands, the greatest of which are “Love God with all our heart, all our soul, all of strength and all our mind” and “Love each other (our neighbors) as we do ourselves”. We must work (do).

What does ‘www’ stand for in your life?
