I’ve seen it happen, actually in my younger years I have probably done it.  Someone sees a sign that says ‘wet paint, do not touch’ and what do they do, they invariably put their finger on  it to see if it is true.  It makes one wonder the point of putting up caution signs.  They are generally put there for a reason, to keep people safe.  But not matter what the sign, or where it may be placed, there will always be someone who is willing to ignore it and plough ahead with their head down.

    James 1:22 in the New Life Translation says, “But don’t just listen to God’s word.  You must do what it says.”  God has given us His word for a reason.  It’s not there so we can just read, think how wonderful it is and then go headlong through life ignoring what He says.  It can only help us if we do what it says.

    Our lives should be founded on two easy steps, reading God’s word to find out what is says and then doing it.
