School zone

Philippians 2:15”so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.”

Have you seen the board ‘Be careful, school zone?, which means there are little children around who are innocent so be careful, now when I look at the world today, I feel we need a board that should say, “Be careful, world zone”, because there seems to be no maturity or accountability around.  Anybody listening?

Yesterday, we went out as a family in the evening, after driving for around ten minutes, one biker just daringly cut across our heavy vehicle right in front of us, my heart was in my mouth but he made it safely though – a very close call – it took some time for me to settle down.  Well, while returning back home, we were not spared, another biker swiftly overtook our vehicle from the left very stupidly - bang – he fell right in front of our front wheel!  Since my husband drove the vehicle slowly, his life was spared and ours too!  But these two incidents kind of spoilt the joy of our outing, early this morning the above scripture popped up in my mind, ‘we live in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation’, don’t we? Proverbs 11:3 ‘The integrity of the upright will guide them, But the crookedness of the treacherous will destroy them.’

Why have people left behind their brains at home while they drive? Why do church-going, Bible-reading Christians behave just like the world and drive their vehicle without license or proper papers? Why do Christian parents give their bike/car keys to their minor children?  Is anybody listening?  A village pastor came to me after hearing me preach and said, ‘I have been riding my bike without license for many years because police normally don’t check in this part of the town, but after hearing you preach today, I will surely apply for license.’  Imagine!  

People out there live together without marriage, purchase degree certificates for money without stepping into college, cheat, manipulate and betray – this is norm for the world but if you are a Christian then you got to be different, the above verse says, ‘appear as lights in the world!’ Ah!
