Grateful for Warnings

As the white pickup passed me, the driver flashed his lights. Not sure if it’s the same all over the country, but in Texas that’s a signal a police car is parked ahead. Speeders beware! I wasn’t speeding and didn’t intend to, but touched my brakes anyway—automatic reaction. And, sure enough, right down the road, there he was, waiting, like a spider for a fly. As I passed, I wondered if I should return the favor by warning the approaching cars. I was conflicted as to whether I should or shouldn’t. It’s not illegal to flash lights and it slows down traffic, that’s for sure. But it also allows speeders off the hook. OK, after a little argument with myself, I did pass along the favor and warn a few people. I’ve been guilty of not paying attention to how fast I’m going. We can all use a little grace sometimes.

  1. That sounds good to me, we all need that reminder. It’s kind of like John the Baptist warming of the approach of the kingdom God. God flashes his lights as well. Thanks Sheila 💕
