When we drive along a street and see the sign that indicates a detour in the road, do we follow the sign or do we blaze ahead determined to continue on the route we have chosen?
When we hear a train approaching, and the bar is blocking us from crossing in front of the train, do we ignore the protective bar hoping to outmaneuver the impending disaster?
There are road signs we encounter daily. Indicators placed in plain sight for our safety. “No brainer” things that intelligence understands.
Then why, oh why, are the obvious signs in life so difficult, not only to see but to follow? Are they not right in front of our face?
What do we see today that are signals we should note as warning signs?
5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
