- Living life in the fast lane only leads to quicker crashes.
- Staying neutral will cause you to roll wherever the wind blows the strongest.
- Staring at your rear-view mirror will cause your focus on your past to kill your future.
- Blowing off the warnings of others who see something you don't see begs for an accident.
- Ignoring the law to live life as you want will endanger others and threaten your true freedom.
These are more than good thoughts on driving - they are metaphors for how you may be living.
- slow down (Psalm 46:10)
- get into a proactive gear (Matthew 16:24),
- look around at what's in front of you (Philippians 3:14-15),
- allow others to check your blind spots (James 5:16),
- and quit ignoring the Laws that God has put forth... not because He wants to kill your ride, but to offer you true freedom instead of a jail cell of your own making (Jeremiah 29:11).
Funny how we understand this on the road, but rebel against it in life.
For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools. (Romans 1:19-22)
