“… I decided to go through the “out-gate,” which was open, whereas the “in-gate” was closed to un-authorized people…”

 W-A-R-N-I-N-G:  Do Not Enter!  This means YOU!  Have you ever just totally disregarded instructions?  I know that I have, and almost every time, I’ve regretted it.  One time, during a College course in Western Civilization…. The Professor gave us 60 questions on our first quiz, instructing us to answer “only 50.”  Many of us, including me, answered all 60 questions, and he took off 2 points for every question answered over the requested 50.  Instead of making 100%, I made only 80%, because I didn’t follow instructions.  Why do we human-kind have this tendency to “do it our way?”  Once, even, because I wanted to go into this “gated community,” I decided to go through the “out-gate,” which was open, whereas the “in-gate” was closed to un-authorized people.  I missed puncturing my two front tires by scarcely one inch.  A tough penalty to pay for not following instructions.  We have guidelines, rules, codes, and directives throughout life, and they’re there for a specific reason.  Failing to follow these guidelines, etc., will, almost always, spell TROUBLE.  We can avoid these pitfalls, simply by obeying the rules.  Even God has set down specific instructions for us to follow, but invariably we choose to “do-it-our-way.”  Doing it our way, will land us in Hades, if we’re not careful.  God does not offer us an alternative route to Heaven.   …Blessings…cjlb…8/4/14

“There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death… For wide is the road that leads to destruction, and many travel it.” (Proverbs 16:25; Matthew 7:13–14)
