There is a road sign in town that always seems to grab my attention.
The sign is placed at a major intersection, where the traffic in the far right lane is about to turn into a four lane road. It has two words on it: Keep Moving.
The sign is there for one main purpose: do not stop. The sign, a yellow sign with bold letters, is telling all those who enter here, keep moving. Yet, people always tend to stop and look. They want to yield or stop.
God tells us the same thing: KEEP MOVING.
Paul writes that we need and must flee immorality (1 Cor. 6:18), flee idolatry (1 Cor. 10:14), flee from the god of money (1 Tim. 6:11), and flee from youthful lusts (2 Tim. 2:22).
Paul would go on to tell Timothy the following in 1 Timothy 6:11
But as for you, O man of God, flee these things. Pursue righteousness, godliness, faith, love, perseverance, and gentleness.
Just like the road sign says, keep moving. Go away from what’s behind you and press on forward. Whatever you do in your spiritual walk with God, don’t stop and become complacent. You’ll wreck yourself.
