Ignoring Alarms

Recently, I was in a building when the fire alarm went off. Everyone continued about their business as if nothing had happened. I walked into the hallway and no one was leaving the building. Everyone was ignoring the alarm, including yours truly!

As it turned out there was no reason to be alarmed that day, but as I thought about it later, there can be great danger in ignoring alarms.

In Psalm 19 we are told, “The statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart… Moreover by them Your servant is warned, And in keeping them there is great reward.

One of the purposes of the Bible is to warn us, to serve as an alarm against the dangers of this world. Sadly, there are many folks who ignore the Word – or never bother to read it in the first place.

However, it also tells us there is benefit to hearing and heeding the Scriptures. In fact, the reward we are told, is great.

My prayer is that each of us will be more diligent in hearing and heeding those alarms!
