HEED WARNING SIGNS!
" Fools make a mock at sin: but among the righteous there is favour."
Recently, I read an article about a peculiar grill. This place served foods that were high in cholesterol and had the name-HEART ATTACK GRILL! The waitresses were dressed as nurses and the owner was dressed as a doctor. With food like the TRIPLE BYPASS BURGER and a slogan TASTE WORTH DYING FOR, it is incredible to see it amass a large following. You get to wonder why insurance agents have a hard time selling insurance, when it is a necessity,yet here is a man selling foods high in cholesterol and making a fast buck!
DEATH! We don't like thinking about it, but if the Lord tarries, we are all going to die. Nobody likes to think about it, but, we do things to flirt with it. I am not against indulging once in a while, but, personally, I prefer BURGER KING to HEART ATTACK GRILL! Words are, also, powerful and we need to be careful what we say. Recently, a customer had a heart attack at the grill! Why? Not because of the foods, but of WORDS!
People who eat at that grill see warning signs.Doctors, nurses and words, but they think it won't happen to them. Again, I am not against the food, but words! How many times God has given us warning signs, yet we, sometimes, may even laugh? Like for example, backbiting. Some ministers, sometimes, have a problem backbiting other ministers, yet they take this lightly and even joke about it. It's the little foxes that spoil the vine. So, whether we are wrestling with issues in our lives with big or little sins, let us learn to take things seriously. It can cause us to have a "Spiritual Heart Attack" before the Lord and hinder our walk. God bless!
