"Fore therefore we both labour and suffer reproach, because we trust in the living God, who is the Saviour of all men, specially of those that believe."1 Timothy 4:10

When I came out of the store, I noticed a piece of paper under my windshield. I knew who left it. How I know I cannot say but I knew someone had seen the incident and had followed me to leave a message. I couldn't read it. I left it there as I drove on to my destination. I was certainly going to be chastised. There might be threats to report my behavior to the police. When I was under control I opened the note.
" I watched you run a red light. A woman had to brake suddenly to avoid being hit by you. She had a child in the car. Please be careful. Stay safe."
Life can wage consequences that blindside us. Some consequences come because we willingly break His commandments. Some come because we are careless, thoughtless, or victims to circumstance. He saves us and carries the guilt for all of these when we humble ourselves and turn to him. He sees all, he knows all, and asks us to be careful and stay safely within his protecting arms.
