Aug 22 – Ignoring the Warnings

Canadians are spending more time soaking up the sun without adequate protection according to the Canadian Cancer Society. Melanoma, skin cancer will account for 6500 new cases and 76,100 non- melanoma skin cancers are expected to be diagnosed in 2014. This is in spite of repeated warnings. Seems like we are getting better at putting our heads in the proverbial sand. But ignoring repeated warnings can have disastrous results. This is true in the spiritual sense also. Proverbs warns” Do not boast about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.” And Paul cautioned, …now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation.” I hope you will not be like King Agrippa, whose sad story is told in the Book of Acts in the New Testament. After hearing a clear gospel presentation and invitation from Paul the Apostle, Agrippa responded with the words, “You almost persuade me to become a Christian.”
