Safety Net

During the first half of construction, 26 men died building the Golden Gate Bridge. So an elaborate safety net was fashioned. Fatalities decreased to zero and work increased by 25 percent! A safe work environment makes for better workers, and being secure of your standing before God can make you a better Christian.

Some folks think the only way we’ll obey God is if there’s a threat of destruction hanging over our heads. But that’s not only a wrong motivation for serving Him, it’s a warped view of God’s heart towards us. He loves us and wants our love in return. He wants our obedience to be based on love, not threats.

God has given us eternal life-His life-and that makes us safe and secure. Knowing this can make all the difference in how we live as Believers.
