“You know how to discern the face of the sky,

       but you cannot discern the signs of the times.”

               (Matthew 16:3)


People who ignore highway signs such as “One Way,” “Yield,” and “Do Not Enter” are asking to be involved in an accident. Just like when we’re driving, we need to pay attention to God’s signs while we’re traveling down life’s highway. God often warns us of impending peril in our lives—through the Word of God, counsel from godly people, the “signs of the times” that Jesus spoke of, or even His still, small voice. We miss these signs when they’re right in front of us because of our rebellious pride or failure to listen.
