The Yellow Lights In Your Life

29 Aug

The Yellow Lights In Your Life…

You’re driving somewhere, and you’re late. The light is green, but it’s turning yellow, and you are a believer. Like many of us, you floor the gas pedal. A hint of red is coming up, so you go through it.

It wasn’t red, not exactly yellow, sort of reddish-yellow. You zoom through; everyone is reading your bumper stickers, “Honk if you love Jesus,” “If you see this car without a driver, I’ve been raptured!” and you’re going through a red light.

In life, some things are definitely wrong: smoking, drunkenness, sexual immorality–those are the red lights. Then there are things that seem questionable. That television show, that activity, that relationship, that decision, that compromise. These are yellow lights.

You know adultery is wrong, but that flirtation, that second glance–that’s the yellow light! You can speed up or put on the brakes. The problem is, yellow lights become red lights and if you don’t stop that flirtation, it will become adultery. So stop that thing. It’s not only the red lights, but more importantly, it’s the yellow lights.

The law of the Lord is perfect, refreshing the soul. The statutes of the Lord are trustworthy, making wise the simple. Psalm 13:7

Look for those warning signs of compromise to sin that lead away from God’s will in your life and steer away from them.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
