When I was a kid, my grandpa had an old van he liked to drive around and tinker with.
When there was a mechanical problem, he was a wizard with tools. But there was a second strategy he often employed when a warning light lit up on the dashboard.
Instead of identifying and investigating the problem, he had an ingenious solution:
Step one: Cut a piece of black electrical tape two inches long
Step two: Place said piece of tape over warning light
Thinking about that makes me smile. But there’s a great life lesson amidst the humor. Because many of us gloss over our own warnings on a daily basis.
In His mercy, God created lots of warning lights in life. For instance…
- The coldness creeping into that important relationship
- The un-Christ-like attitude you’ve had lately
- The Godly counsel of your family, friends, or authorities
- Your conscience
- Your Bible
Don’t waste those warnings! You can only get away with it for so long.
