For many years, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco has been a popular place for people to commit suicide. Last year, a record 46 people took their own lives by jumping off the iconic orange structure. Through the years, people have suggested that a net should be put in place to discourage people from jumping and to save those who do jump. Officials have never agreed on such a plan. All of that may soon change, as there is more support for constructing a safety net—a $66 million stainless steel net that would be installed 20 feet below the sidewalk.
People commit spiritual suicide all the time. They do so by rejecting Jesus Christ, God’s Son, Savior of the world.
We are instructed to try to save them. What are you doing to help put up a net to save people from eternal destruction?
“Come, follow me,” Jesus said, “and I will make you fishers of men.”—Matthew 4:19.
