Take Heed....

Two young adults were involved in a fender bender and at first they were angry with one another and accused the other of being at fault, but eventually, calmer heads prevailed and they decided to call the police and let them settle the matter. The dispatcher told them that it would be a few moments as all their officers were tied up.

As they waited for the police to arrive, they got involved in a conversation and discovered that both of them were single, and that they had a lot in common, so the chemistry began to flow.

Finally the young woman said, "You know, maybe it was God's will that we had this accident and we get to meet one another."

And the young man, who was really attracted to the young woman, said excitedly, "I think you are absolutely right!"

And then the young woman said, "It's silly for us to stand out here in the cold. Let's get inside your car and sit where it will be a little warmer." And, of course, the young man agreed.

As they sat talking in the car the young woman said, "You know, I just happened to be at the store and I bought a bottle of wine and I have some paper cups. Let me go get them and we will have a toast to this chance meeting."

The young man thought that was a great idea. They made their first toast, he gulped down his wine and then noticed she hadn't toasted... and he said, "Aren't you going to drink yours?"

She said, "No, I think I'll just wait for the police to arrive and assess the damages!"

The Bible warns us in Heb. 11:25 that the "pleasures of sin are passing." Satan will use every method he can to allow us to think that everything is going our way and then, WHAM! Just when we least expect it we find ourselves in a predicament that we never saw coming. That's why Paul writes in I Cor. 10:12 "Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall."
