‘Stop, look, listen before you cross the street, Stop, look, listen before you cross the street.
You use your eyes, you use your ears, You use your ears, you use your eyes,
And then you use your feet.’
I remember learning this road safety little ditty when I was young. (I must have taken note as I’m still here!) But it also applies in our Christian life. In this day and age it is so difficult to stop. Life is a rush. In our rushing we get into some nasty scrapes. We need to stop.
We need to look, look at the Bible, see what it tells us, look around and see God’s many blessings.
Then we need to listen. Listen to His promptings, listen to the word of other Christians and listen to His word.
