I narrowly missed hitting a deer as I was driving home a few nights ago. I saw her in the headlights and slowed down as I approached her. She was walking slowly and calmly toward the highway, apparently oblivious to the oncoming danger. If she had been moving a little faster and I had not noticed her as soon as I did, she might never have known what hit her.
This is how it is with many people in regards to the danger of sin. They do not understand the peril they put themselves in. They blindly continue on a path that could very well lead to disaster. They move toward temptation, instead of away from it. They don’t see the oncoming disaster of their flirtations with drunkenness, sexual immorality, greed or a lackadaisical attitude toward God and their fellow man.
Don’t be like a deer in the headlights! Wise up and see the danger of sin.
“There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.”—Proverbs 16:25.
