Oh To Be Wise Meditations
Oh the traffic of life. You never know what to expect in traffic. The way people around you drive and the laws that are suppose to keep us safe. Sometimes its smooth travel and open road. The lights and traffic pattern seem to work for you and not against you. People around you give you space to merge or change lines. Even the very road you travel has strong gravel easy to drive with spacious lanes. To get where your going you don't even need your google maps to get you through traffic at a timely manner. Oh but traffic does gets very hectic and costly, especially in rush hour. Everybody is trying to get somewhere, be someone, and live out there truths. It then gets crazy out there and police and law try to get a handle on it. But accidents and backed up traffic is just the start. Angry people with horrible road rage about life run you off the road. Traffic patterns throw you off because of the pressure of traffic. This is were mistakes happen and can cost someone their life. Sobriety of mind is important to driving in traffic. You spend a lot of your day driving so you must not be distracted. Your phone wants your attention, social media wants your attention, and your loved ones want your attention. Your impatience can be the death of you. Keep the eyes of your heart on the road. Its not enough while in busy traffic to keep one eye on the road. Be sober minded with both eyes on the road. So then, have your minds ready for action. Keep alert and set your hope completely on the blessing which will be given you when Jesus Christ is revealed. Yes, stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. Like the Allstate commercials about Mayhem always being out there. Know that the enemy is out there and traffic can become influenced by evil. Overcome evil on the road of life with good. Stay away from the anger of wicked people, why die early because of sin and foolishness on the roads of life. Others may sleep, but we should stay awake and be alert. Because of the privilege and authority God has given us, heed this warning: Don’t think you are better than you really are. Be honest in your evaluation of yourselves, measuring yourselves by the faith God has given us. Drive with purpose, passion, intentionality, and most of all humility. Live humbly before your God, it will make you a better person, a better driver on the roads of life.
