A chauffeur was being honored for his record of having driven for more than 45 years and never having an accident.
“What’s your secret?” asked the Master of Ceremonies.
Quickly he replied, “I stay away from dangerous places – places where accidents are likely to happen.”
What great advice. All too often we find ourselves in places or situations where danger is awaiting us. Acting carelessly, we sometimes get into difficulties that present problems that we cannot solve or are forced to make decisions that exceed our experience.
We can get great insight for living from God’s Word. The Bible puts it this way: “Hold on to whatever is really good. Steer clear of evil in any form.”
The Bible will give us insight into dangers and the destructive nature of sin. It will help us see sin for what it is – an enticing, inviting, ensnaring, and an easy path to self-destruction with no warning signs or signals.
Prayer: Help us, Father, to be alert to the dangers of sin that would wreck our lives. May we always be aware of the temptation to travel on unsafe roads. We know that Your Word will take us safely through life if we follow its directions: in Your Name. Amen.
Scripture for Today: 1 Thessalonians 5:15-22 Abstain from every form of evil.
