Living in a "Safety First" World

June 23, 2014

Our culture has gone to the extreme where safety is concerned.  Safety labels are everywhere.  Here are just a few of the warnings that can be found: 

  1. A label on a baby stroller warns: "Remove child before folding."

  2. A brass fishing lure with a three-pronged hook on the end warns: "Harmful if swallowed."

  3. A popular manufactured fireplace log warns: "Caution--risk of fire."

  4. A set of shin pads warns: "Pads cannot protect any part of the body they do not cover."

 

And yet in Mark 8:34-36, Jesus said: "Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me.  For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me and for the gospel will save it.  What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?"  In II Corinthians 11:23b-27, the apostle Paul describes his experience as a disciple of Jesus Christ.  Paul's life cannot be described as "safety first," but rather "Christ first."
