The bible talks to us about being "wise as serpents". There are two kinds of wisdom according to the Book of James...wisdom from God and wisdom NOT from God. The other day I was watching a commercial on television for a sleeping pill. It was the middle of the night so I guess it caught my attention. The commercial depicted a person in a deep sleep, enjoying rest and being refreshed with some beautiful music and a lovely little butterfly buzzing through the room. Towards the end of the ad was the "disclaimer". It was that legal part which releases the company from any possible dangers and side effects. I thought I was asleep and dreaming when I heard it and had to rewind it on my DVR to make certain my ears were working right. Here is what it said...(actual disclaimer language from the ad)
"Walking, eating, driving or engaging in other activities while asleep without remembering it the next day have been reported."
Suddenly, all of those walks in the park I had last week, all the lunches crazy conversations, all of those rush hour trips to the house that were like Daytona made sense! The people around me were all asleep!
Today its a very simple question. Are you pursuing the wisdom of God or are you walking, eating and driving around without remembering it the next day? Be sober, alert and watch your doctrine closely. And next time you are walking, eating and driving among crazy folks, just yell real loud...wake up!
