June 30 – Stop Signs

tfh sunriseA person with whom I am well acquainted came to a stop sign. He looked both ways and then made what the policeman who stopped him called a “rolling stop”. However, that is not a real stop, so he paid a fine. That man now comes to a complete stop at every stop sign. I have since seen many drivers do the same. Slow down, and sometimes not even look both ways and drive through the stop sign or red light. But as irritated as stop signs can be when we are in a hurry, it’s still the law. And we should not ignore the stop signs of life by trying to pretend they don’t exist. Unfortunately many ignore them because they think they have a better idea. But God’s Word still says, “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked. Whatever a man sows, that shall he also reap.” In the end, it’s smarter to obey God’s Word than to live by our own rules
