Danger, Will Robinson!

It is 6:08 in the morning. I tuned into the weather channel this morning because I needed to make a decision about canceling Bible study for tomorrow.

The report is 6-10" of snow hitting Long Island tomorrow beginning in the morning.

Wouldn't you know? I ran out of milk yesterday, so that means I must hit the store VERY early this morning or there will be no milk to purchase because everyone goes into panic mode.

Most people listen to the weather channel with more respect and belief than they do The Word of God.   The report is 6-10".  We could get 3". We could get 24".  No one ever knows.  But, we act as if the weatherman's words are accurate and belief-worthy.

Geez, we even heeded the words of The Robot in the Lost In Space TV show.  When he yelled, "Danger! Danger, Will Robinson!", I'd be on the edge of my seat. Ut-oh!

God Almighty warns us throughout all of Scripture of dangers.  Do we heed Them?  Do we respect His Words and believe those Words as much as we do the weather report or a TV show?

He guides us in what our thought patterns should be like - for our own good.  He declares to us all His spiritual laws that are in effect in the universe so we can understand how our behaviors will affect our lives going forward.  He affirms His Love for us so that we can walk in freedom and victory and hope and faith as His children.

But, the majority of Christ-believers that I know give more honor, respect, and allegiance to the weathermen than they do Christ's Words.

Oh, what a sad society we live in.  Those who choose to live by true faith in The Son of God and His Words written down for our well-being are truly a minority.  I stand in that minority.

Because of Him and Unto Him,

I never thought of that before. Well said!

Thank you, Andrew. Glad I opened your eyes to something you hadn't thought of before. Does a mother's heart good!

Ut-oh. Made me chuckle! But trueness in your words and I CHOOSE to believe the Word above all. I will follow Him and when I fall, I will humble myself there and He will pick me up. Ohhh His love, mercy and grace! (The scene from sister act, when Woopi Goldberg and the nuns are singing "I will follow him, follow him wherever He may go" comes to mind. 😀 )

Me too… This fallen flesh sure does tend to rely on it's senses more than the One who grants all of them to begin with.

Thanks for the trip back in time… I loathed Dr. Smith.

Mel, I love when they sang that song as unto The LORD. I used to sing it to Him! Still do if I hear it. Thanks for reading and commenting.

Floyd, I did too! I could not stand him! Still waiting for us to have personal robots! LOL... Thanks for reading and commenting, my friend.
