Nice suburban scene! Beautiful sunny day! Traffic is not too heavy, which makes for a pleasant commute! By the look of the trees, it must be a northern state, but whether East or West, I don't know. But, although this picture looks "normal", there is something that caught my eye; something that makes this picture quite unusual. Have you guessed it yet? Hint: let me give you a hand. Simple now, isn't it? The stop sign has a "I love you" symbol on it!!! This may in fact be common in some areas of our country, but honestly, I don't remember ever seeing it before! What a nice thing to do!!! Makes you almost want to pick-up-stakes and move there, doesn't it? If even the street signs extend a warm greeting, what more could you want? I can think of one thing and its found in the book of Matthew...
Matthew, Chapter 22
34 But hearing that He had silenced the Sadducees, the Pharisees were gathered together. 35 And one of them, a lawyer, questioned Him , testing Him, and saying, 36 Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law? 37 And Jesus said to him, "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind." Deut. 6:5 38 This is the first and great commandment. 39 And the second is like it: "You shall love your neighbor as yourself." Lev. 19:18 40 On these two commandments all the Law and the Prophets hang.
You guessed it... a love for God!!! You will do a very good thing if you love your neighbor, but to love God, completes everything!!! Why? Because we all need God in our lives. Think of it; without HIM there are no standards, no real absolutes, nothing to focus our lives on that will not change. God designed us to seek him; that is why every culture that ever was has people who desire deity. I suggest changing the sign: Place an upward arrow to the left of the I-L-Y sign!!! Remember God loves you more that anyone you will ever meet AND LOVE HIM BACK!!!!!
