When a bottle of liquid has a skull and cross bones on it, one should be smart enough not to drink it.
If one notices the sign “slippery when wet,” one should be smart enough not to speed that way.
If the shark tank has “no hands allowed,” one should be smart enough not to put a hand in there.
The point of all this is, we wish that people would learn without having to suffer the consequences
of being hard-headed. A man may know the risk of picking up hookers, but not learn his lesson
until he is arrested, or is a victim of a transmitted sexual disease. Pro 5:11-13.
If the word is out, “ Don’t text while driving,” man should learn from those words and not from
having an accident. In Luke 15:11-32, we read of a young man who demanded his inheritance and
wasted it after moving far away. This young guy didn’t listen to anything until he was broke, alone
and sitting among the pigs desiring the slop they ate.
Likewise the word of the Lord warns men, but are we listening? Pro 1:20-33. Pro 22:3.
