Project Grace Das 56-57: Wisdom in Warnings

Do not be deceived. God is not mocked. Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” Galatians 6:7

“Nasa huli ang pagsisisi.” This is a popular saying among us Filipinos. Usually, most of us fall prey to the sweet enticements of procrastination and “forced” ignorance. We tend to do tomorrow what could have been done today, and when tomorrow comes and we haven’t even begun what we were supposed to do, we end up wallowing in guilt and regret.

The same is true when it comes to our Christian lives. We usually know when trouble is around. We are aware that when we get too close to that certain unbelieving person, we might get too attached to him or her. We recognize that if we take a sip of that drug, just a tiny dose, we might become addicted to it soon. And yet sometimes we still do it. We take the plunge knowing that it is wrong. Why?  It is the result of a history of ignoring warnings about an impending fire. – Max Lucado

Prevention is always better than cure – at least, that’s what I believe. If your senses are numb, bring them back to life. Pause and observe everything that’s happening in your christian life. Do not take for granted the warning signs God gives you because they are for your protection. Don’t be blind and don’t make yourself blind. Be conscious and alert. Always.
