A Weekend Of Staying In Your Own Lane

It never ceases to amaze me how highway drivers rubber-neck. Whether it's blue lights at an off-ramp, a car stalled on the side of road or a huge accident in the median, we'll automatically slow down to see what's going on.

This is one of the most dangerous things a driver can do. Slowing down the traffic can cause other accidents and cause everyone to move even slower. Curiosity may have killed the cat, but it can have a serious impact on driving too - no pun intended.

The same goes for our Christian faith. If we're busy rubber-necking, looking in with curiosity at other people's lives, we're taking our eyes off the road. Our own path has enough pot holes, ditches and construction areas on it to keep our focus for the rest of our lives. We'll cause some serious accidents and traffic congestion if we start driving our vehicle of life with our head out the window, slowing down to watch someone else's accident.

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee. Isaiah 26:3

Make this a weekend of staying in your own lane, with both hands on the wheel and your eyes on the road. Yes, there will be accidents on the side of the road and traffic may slow down for a while. But keep your mind stayed on God and His perfect peace will keep your safe on the road. Trust in Him this weekend like you've never trusted before.
