When I got back on the road after the power turned back on again I was really grateful for green and red lights. They are there for our safety and protection. They regulate things and stop utter chaos from taking over.
Somewhere I got thinking and compared this to the commandments. Sometimes we hit a red light and are so frustrated because we want to keep going. Other times we hit a green and sail right through the intersection. Commandments regulate our lives so that we don't have confusion running amok in our own minds. They give us safety and warnings of when a stop will be necessary and tell us when to keep going.
So the next time you get stuck at a red light for 5 minutes, remember that it's keeping you from driving forward and getting seriously hurt. It's only for our good.
Red light, green light.
