The Fifth Roadsign is using Common Sense.
I believe that God has given us minds that are capable of making rationial decisions. By using all the other Road-signs that God has provided for us it takes common sense to know what’s right, and do it. Sometimes we are so stubborn that we still choose to make deals with God and continue to look for “Signs” or conformation of God’s will. I know that sometimes I can see HUGE green signs ovet the interstate and still question whether they are right or not; as if, whoever put up the sign made a mistake and I’m the only genious that was intelligent to catch it. Yeah Right!!!! Why do we still question God when we know His will, because we are human.
I know this may sound confusing, but even though our common sense along with the other roadsigns points us to God’s will sometimes His will for us does not make sense. Think about God wanting Abraham to sacrifice his only son Isaac, think about Noah building an ark when none of those people had ever seen rain or a boat.
So sometimes we have to just say OK God, I know that this is what You want me to do, this is what the Road-Signs are pointing to. It may not make sense, but that is where FAITH comes from.
These are some verses from the Message Version:
And here’s why: God gives out Wisdom free, is plainspoken in Knowledge and Understanding. He’s a rich mine of Common Sense for those who live well, a personal bodyguard to the candid and sincere. He keeps his eye on all who live honestly, and pays special attention to his loyally committed ones.
[ Never Walk Away ] Dear friend, guard Clear Thinking and Common Sense with your life; don’t for a minute lose sight of them. They’ll keep your soul alive and well, they’ll keep you fit and attractive. You’ll travel safely, you’ll neither tire nor trip. You’ll take afternoon naps without a worry, you’ll enjoy a good night’s sleep. No need to panic over alarms or surprises, or predictions that doomsday’s just around the corner, Because God will be right there with you; he’ll keep you safe and sound.
A common sense person lives good sense; fools litter the country with silliness.
65 Do good to your servant
according to your word, O LORD.
66 Teach me knowledge and good judgment (Common Sense),
for I believe in your commands.
67 Before I was afflicted I went astray,
but now I obey your word.
Just use the signs that God Has given you and use your “noggin” common sense. DUH!!!!!
