July 28 – Ignoring High Alert Warning

Villagers in Indonesia refused to leave the area around Mt. Sinabung, an active volcano that has been on high alert for quite a while. An Indonesian official Subur Tambun said, “Only about 10,000 of 33,000 have gone to safe shelters. .” These people believe that bad things only happen to others- not themselves. They are not alone in ignoring high alert warnings. Many ignore the repeated warnings given in the Bible, such as one by Solomon in Proverbs, “boast not about tomorrow, for you do not know what a day may bring forth.” Jesus, once spoke to a group refusing to face spiritual danger and to accept His offer of forgiveness and eternal life. He said, “you are not willing too come to me that you might have life.” The villagers of Indonesia would be wise to go to safe shelters. And it would be wise for all of us to heed Amos’ words, “Prepare to meet your God.”
