Distracted Driving and Distracted Living

Many years ago, I worked for a company that delivered furniture.  It wasn't the best job in the world but it paid good and I worked with good people.  I was able to meet new people and see most of the beauty of Cherokee County through the windshield of a furniture delivery truck.  Just so we're all on the same page, this truck was one of the large ones that could carry multiple pieces of furniture and appliances.  This in of itself wasn't necessarily a bad thing.  However, there was one person that nobody liked to ride with when he was driving the delivery truck.  It wasn't that he was a bad person or listened to crazy music or anything like that.  He just had a hard time staying focused on the road and drove way too fast.  If something caught his attention and he looked at it for more than a second or two, the truck would begin to drift in that direction.  There were many trips I had conversations with God asking Him to please let me live through the ride and I would never do anything bad again.  There were even a couple of times I was sure we were going to wreck and die and this was before texting and driving became an issue.  This may be just a humorous, but true, story that many can relate to, but the fact of the matter is that too many people are dying as a result of distracted driving.  Many more people are dying without Jesus because of distracted living.  Let us be as proactive to put an end to distracted living as we are to distracted driving.  Tell someone about the mercy, grace, and love of God today.  Just like that guy drifted in the direction his eyes were looking, where a person's treasure is, their heart will be also.  Proclaim the Good News of Jesus Christ to someone who is living distracted by the temporal things of this life, that they may find the eternal riches of God in salvation.
