Red Dye Speaks

Saw an amusing reminder the other day of what can happen when you do something you shouldn’t, don’t have any immediate consequences… and go about your life convinced that maybe it wasn’t so bad. After all, you didn’t get hit by lightning! Hehe… yet.

Turns out this guy robbed a bank, and stuck the bag of cash in his pants. In an awkward place. Then he nonchalantly went shopping. Half an hour later, the packet exploded in his pants, causing a big cloud of red dye to emanate from that region of his body, for all the world (and security cameras) to see.

Aren’t we as foolish sometimes? We start acting against the desires of our heavenly Father for us. We hear His voice, quietly warning us. We ignore it and lean further and further (like a kid straining for a cookie jar), telling ourselves it’s really okay… and when no thunder roars from heaven, we think we are safe. This can be any area big or small – truthtelling or withholding truth, cheating, gossiping, sexual immorality, stealing…

Loving reminder: “Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.” (Gal 6:7)
