Thinking Upon the Red Flag, The Dismissed Warning

La. Man Drowns in Rough Surf Off Fla.

This odd bit of news makes me wonder about those who speak of death in terms of “It was his time” or “it’s not my time yet”.

There is a deeper message ihere, than that, though. It is the message of warnings, and those who ignore them. Why do people “take their chances”? Why do they feel that the red flags are not for them, but for others? Why do we?

Someone quoted this verse from Ecclesiastes:

Ecclesiastes 7: 14
In the day of prosperity be joyful,
But in the day of adversity consider:
Surely God has appointed the one as well as the other

How many direful warnings to we decide to ignore? How many red flags do we pass on our way through life?

And what are we passing on to….?

This is more what I expected to hear from the signs of the broad devastation.

Prayers, prayers ….. we beseech God for His mercy.
