Obvious Advice

A newspaper headline says that the Utah Poison Control Center advises people not to take poison. Do we really need people giving out such obvious advice? We would hope not, but perhaps we do.

 Just think about the common-sense “Do” and “Don’t” List found in the Bible. For example: Don’t eat the forbidden fruit. Be generous. Don’t be greedy. Love your neighbor. Don’t commit adultery. Go to church. Don’t lie. Pray continually. Don’t steal. Love God. Don’t be self-righteous.

The list could go on and on. When you think about the way we humans often behave, I suppose we really do need to be told what to do, even when the answer is quite obvious.
