Peacock Warning

Peacocks are not only beautiful, they are useful. During World War II, England pheasants were vocal when bombs went off miles away. Because peacocks are very sensitive to far away vibrations, they are used in China and Japan as warning “devices” to predict seismic activity indicating the possibility of an earthquake.

When we’re regularly in God’s Word, we should be as sensitive to warning signs. Headed down a rocky path that God doesn’t have planned, we heed the feelings of uneasiness. When I was asked to join the Board of an organization, I said I would think about it. While praying about the request, I felt an distinct “no.” It wasn’t but a few weeks later that the Board had a dispute that became known to all the members. Board members quit, several leaving the organization. I was glad to have avoided the conflict.

1 Corinthians 12: 12 “Therefore let him who thinks he stands take heed lest he fall.”

When was the last time you felt uneasy about something? Did you halt at the warning signs or find yourself in a sticky situation?
