We pass them every day. Sometimes we read them and sometimes we do not. Sometimes we obey them and sometimes we do not. Traffic signs are everywhere. They are there to protect us, to guide us, to warn us, and to bring order. We want every other driver on the roads and highways to abide by them. Yet, we on the other hand, want a little flexibility with these signs when it comes to ourselves. If I am in a hurry, I really do not have time to come to a full stop at the STOP sign. If there are no other cars in my line of vision, why do I need to slow down at the YIELD sign? What about the CAUTION sign? After all, I have been driving for a number of years, I do not need some sign to tell me to be cautious. Traffic signs are everywhere. I just do not want them to get in my way.
What if there were these same signs in your marriage? Would you read them, or obey them, or ignore them? If these were there, would you want your spouse to follow them to the letter? What about for you? Follow or ignore?
Over the next few blogs, we are going to look at “Traffic Signs” and ask this question, “What do these traffic signs mean if we apply them to marriage - to your marriage?” Don’t miss out. Come along. It will be one heck of a ride!
