The gift of a rumble strip.
Don’t copy the behavior and customs of this world, but let God transform you into a new person by changing the way you think. Then you will learn to know God’s will for you, which is good and pleasing and perfect.
When we begin applying the rumble strips in our lives, we might get labeled a goody-two-shoes or as holier than thou. However, we all can point to a moral failure of someone we know or have read about. How did it happen? It is most often because someone chose to ignore a rumble strip from God… and they just kept drifting off course into a ditch.
While being labeled negatively for obeying God’s commands may be difficult to deal with and likely won’t win you any popularity contests, you will instead earn respect from others and experience fewer regrets in life.
Today, thank God for the gift of a rumble strip. Ask Him to give you strength to apply His rumble strips even when it isn’t popular or convenient.
