Clever! My cellular network provider decided to offer all its clients a free 1 gig of data. Ha, and they gave no thought to the consequences. As expected the network crashed. You seriously can't tell me that with all the brain power there is running such a large company that no one anticipated this result??? Sadly, somebody probably did warn them, but they chose to ignore it. A safer bet would have been to make the offer valid for 1 month.
This doesn't surprise me though. It seems to be a bad trait of human behaviour that we will barge straight into a storm even though the warning signs are all around us. We see this trait throughout scripture.
Adam and Eve warned against eating the fruit – they did it anyway
Israel told to repent from worshipping foreign gods – they worshipped anyway
Judas was warned through prophesy that someone would betray Christ – he betrayed Him anyway
Peter warned that he would deny Christ – he denied Him anyway
I guess what I'm trying to say is that we need to start learning better discernment. Here is an interesting comment to use as a great example. Jesus said to His disciples that they should “test the spirits”. In other words we should expect that there will be more than one spiritual force communicating with us and we need to learn to discern which one is God's voice.
Eish, that sounds complicated! It doesn't have to be and it doesn't have to frighten you. Jesus has given us His word that He will always communicate with us clearly through the Holy Spirit. The only question then is how to recognise it. Lol! Its actually easy. Its the one that isn't screaming at you. Remember, we've spoken about this before, The Holy Spirit speaks in the still small voice and Jesus guides us with His peace.
Maybe it is time to discern which voices we are listening too so that we can avoid disaster.
