1 Peter 5:8 Be of sober spirit, be on the alert. Your adversary, the devil, prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour.
Texting and driving and email.
Look around … you see the Lord everywhere and he is apparent everywhere. Look for the enemy … he is everywhere also but hidden. Waiting for you to take the bait. I have a bad habit of texting, driving and checking my email. I would like to think I am very good at it. (oh wait I am good at, that is scary) I find myself getting mad at people when I see them doing the very thing I do. Go figure! I use hands free, but it is still a distraction. I have had a few close calls. You know curbs, a mailbox the usual, I am sure you can relate. We all receive warnings or wake up calls in this area and we heed them for a little while and then for the most part we are back to doing what we do on a regular basis again …. Right? The other day I had an accident. I pulled out of 7-11 on a two lane road heading north bound. There was oncoming traffic and they were traveling southbound. No sooner had I got up to speed (30mph) when a spare tire (fully air up on a rim) came flying out of the back of this pickup truck and I was the bull’s-eye. I could not go right nor left. I think I had all but two seconds if that to react. It took about two hops in the air about five feet tall I think. I locked my truck up and was able to come to a complete stop before the tire hit my truck (3500.00 damages) had I been checking my phone or texting I probably would have taken that tire through my windshield and I would have been moving. I said I had two seconds but it was probably less. That was Monday, Tuesday in men’s group someone posed the question “Do you think the Lord was trying to show you something?” I said with a little exasperation “I don’t know!” Then I heard it. It was a wakeup call ….. A warning, however you want to look at it about texting and driving. It was very clear. I have become way too comfortable with texting and driving. So now I pull over to take care of business.
So the question is this. Do you think you got it together with your driving that you can text? If you do then I have news for you …… You don’t! Be safe and be blessed
