Stay Tuned In

park rangerA former park ranger at Yellowstone National Park tells the story of a ranger who was leading a group of hikers in the park. The ranger was telling the hikers about the flowers and animals, and he considered the messages on his two-way radio disrupting to his talk, so he turned it off.

As they continued the hike, they were met by an out-of-breath park worker who had run after them. He asked why the ranger hadn’t responded to the messages on his radio. A grizzly bear had been seen stalking the group and the authorities were trying to warn them of the danger!

Any time we tune God out, we not only put ourselves in peril, we also endanger those around us. It is very important that we never ignore God’s communication to us, since it has the power to save.

“Do not treat prophecies with contempt.”—1 Thessalonians 5:20.
