How does a car know to send you a dashboard warning that driving conditions could be hazardous?
Technology just amazes me. The sensors on my car knew that it was drizzling rain and that the temperature was close to 32 degrees. It knew that those two factors together should produce a warning message to let me know to be careful while driving because ice could be possible. Although I didn’t see any signs of ice, I was thankful for the warning to be cautious.
I was thinking how awesome it would be if every time we started to make wrong choices, a little neon light would flash before us warning us of the dangers ahead. Then I remembered a conversation I had recently where the person said, “deep inside my gut, I know it just isn’t right.”
There it is! Our conscience. The Holy Spirit. God’s leading. We do have it. I believe that deep down inside, our human technology processes when the environment, the conditions, the choices we have to make are hard and together with our right-versus-wrong temperature, our inner conscience gives us the warning.
Keep your eyes wide open today, your heart on guard and don’t let the devil’s dangerous conditions steer you off course. Drive with caution through your day and let God lead you safely through the icy patches.
