Let’s be honest. How many times did you realize all the warning signs you needed were there, but now it’s too late? When driving, there are signs that warn us of danger up ahead. They tell us to slow down because there is a dangerous curve coming up. If we don’t use caution, we could end up getting hurt.
In life, we often have multiple opportunities or warnings that come to us to save us from possible harm. When we are little, someone told us not to touch the stove when it’s in use because we could get burned. What do we do? Touch the stove. Throughout grade school, we’re taught the dangers of drugs and alcohol, often times with guest speakers sharing their stories of how their lives were negatively impacted. What do we do? Go out and get drunk or even try a type of drug. Some wise elder in the family tells a young family member not to “court” with a certain “fast tail gal.” What does he do? Go get the girl pregnant.
