When situations boil over, will you help them?
Last article, you learned about the mighty power of the Holy Scriptures. Now, we’ll look at how to spot and watch for danger signals in your life.
Automobiles often have red warning lights that signal us when something we cannot see is malfunctioning.
God has wonderfully designed our bodies so that they, too, signal us when they need special attention. Consistent dizziness, nausea and pain in a specific area of the body are all examples of the danger signals that God allows our bodies to give us.
Sometimes, when a danger signal occurs, you may be aware of a possible cause. For example, if you feel sluggish and you haven’t been getting much sleep, you should try getting to bed earlier. If your efforts don’t help and the danger signal persists, you should consult a doctor. After all, you would do at least as much for your car by taking it to a mechanic if it were malfunctioned in some way!
In addition to consulting a doctor when a danger signal occurs, I heartily recommend a regular physical checkup as a preventive measure. For some years now, I have had a complete physical every year. The detailed advice that I have received from the doctor, nutritionist and others involved with the physical has no doubt prevented many problems for me in the past and will certainly prevent many more problems in the future — problems that might be very difficult to cure if allowed to develop. The advantage of a physical is that early warning signals can be detected long before your body gives you a more obvious signal of the problem.
