Living Lesson: Can't You Read The Sign?By: Christopher Wiles
"Sign, sign, everywhere a sign
Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind
Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?"
I come back to the hit song lyrics, "Sign, sign, everywhere a sign, Blockin' out the scenery, breakin' my mind, Do this, don't do that, can't you read the sign?" Perhaps we should quit looking for and trying to interpret what we think might be "signs" around us. We can get caught up in worry while trying to read the supposed signs that we let them consume us, break our minds with worry, and block out the scenery around us. Rather than relying on the wisdom that we frequently ask for in prayer, we mistakenly turn to sign interpreting as the basis our decision making.
"But if any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all generously and without reproach, and it will be given to him." - James 1:5
